About the work

Camel rider under a canopy feeds into my recent work where the motif of a camel is a vehicle to carry the figure in recent paintings – quite literally as a vehicle but also as a prop to locate the character and narrative. Camel rider under a canopy has a figure atop a camel, the top hatted figure contorting as the camel makes its way through the canopy of the overhanging trees which frame the image.

About the artist:

Born 1980 Chesterfield, Ryan Mosley lives and works in London and Sheffield. Graduated from Bachelor of Arts, Drawing and Painting, Huddersfield University (2003); and Master of Arts, Painting, Royal College of Art, London (2007).

I consider myself to be a painter as that’s what I spend my days in the studio doing. Though paintings rely on ideas and information, its within drawing that I find ideas which feed the painting – a page in a sketch book, a painted outline on a canvas, the power of the economy of the material (pencil and paper), the spontaneity of what can be recorded and what can be dismissed with drawing, and what can be imagined through ideas on a page.

Mosley’s works are held in public and private collections including Arts Council England; Plymouth Museum; Ramm, Exeter; Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield; Berger Collection; and Saatchi Gallery.

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.
