About the work

The works feel deeply personal. [They] belong to a new exploration of the idea of existing between two emotional spaces and the feelings of “otherness” that can arise from this space. (Christina Kimeze)

Kimeze’s paintings and works on paper, lend form to the rich quietude of our internal lives, in works that capture feelings and sensations born of memory and found through reflection. Emerging or retreating, the female figures of Kimeze’s works inhabit a space of thresholds – curtains, partitions, canopies or stairs –favoured motifs which serve as devices to both conceal and reveal the subject’s presence. Partly veiled by their surroundings and possessing an ethereal quality, her subjects are emblematic and relational, composed of many identities drawn from family and friends or modelled on her own form, but equally, the product of the recesses of her memory.

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.

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.
