About the work

I often use drawing to visualise larger works, and in this particular artwork I was exploring ideas for a construction in my studio. Building objects and environments in front of a camera has become an important part of my practice – and photographic records of these scenes are brought together with digital print, painted marks, and screen print to form large scale hybrid ‘paintings’. The figure glides in and out of my practice, as I look at certain ways in which image making is a construction, and how it can be taken apart and represented. Creating internal difficulties between the subject, object and image.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
