About the work

Rain Study (the hour of the day of the month of the season) is a series of drawings that resemble star fields and other astronomical imagery, created when paper momentarily exposed to rain was overlaid with a fast-drying pigment. Like many of Kallat’s works, each Rain Study appears like a document from a distant time and space, an effect increased by the enigmatic letters B.C. that denote the duration for which each piece was exposed to the open skies, measured in the number of the breath cycles of the artist.

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.
