About the work

This is a version of the first drawing I made during lockdown no. 1. It is from a series that shows forms fitting tightly within the frame.

About the artist:

Born 1971 London, Peter Peri lives and works in London. Graduated from MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art (2003).

Peri makes paintings, drawings, sculptures – he is particularly interested in line as both direction and accumulation. The subject of his work could be thought of as dissolution, or more precisely the fetishisation of dissolution within modernity.

His work is held in public and private collections including Tate Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum Collection, Zabludowicz Collection, UBS, and The Arts Council of Great Britain.

Selected exhibitions include Course, Almine Rech Gallery, London (2020); Alchemist(s), Pearl Lam Galleries, Pedder, Hong Kong (2020); The Winners, Acadia Missa Gallery, London (2019); Quarters, Pearl Lam H Queens, Hong Kong (2019); CASS Projects: The Sleeping Procession, Cass Sculpture Foundation, Chichester (2017); Uncting, Almine Rech Gallery Savile Row, London (2016); The Scarlet Letter, Fundatia Culturala Intact, Cluj-Napoca (2016); Labyrinth(s), Pearl Lam Galleries, Hong Kong, (2016); Zero: Infinite Possibilities, The Farjam Foundation, Dubai (2015); The Reign of Quantity, Pearl Lam Galleries, Singapore (2014); BP Exhibition: Classified: Contemporary British Art, Tate Britain, London (2009); Art Now, Tate Britain, London (April 2007); Arts Council Collection: How To Improve The World, 60 Years of British Art, Hayward Gallery, London and touring (2006-2007); and solo exhibition, Kunsthalle Basel (2006).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th 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.
