About the work

This drawing is made with felt pens on 200g ivory card. Drawing provides me with imagery and form to then consider, and if need be take into another medium.

About the artist:

Born 1967 UK, Phillip Allen lives and work in London. Graduated from BA Fine Art, Kingston University (1990); and MA Fine Art Royal College of Art (1992).

“As I see it, Allen has really struck out on his own path. He is a sojourner interested in the relationship between materiality and the sublime, and between the physical and the ineffable, without coming to a conclusion. This is why his paintings remain open. More important, for all of his interest in paint’s materiality, he has never settled into a signature style.”  – John Yau, Hyper Allergic

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July.

This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

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.
