About the work

A drawing of sculpture in progress, The Footprints Ended.

The donated artwork depicts the construction of a larger-than-life figure using twigs and branches, which began in March 2020.

I have been making video recordings of the figure under construction, which includes added footage of Sunday walks in the area of Highgate Wood and Alexandra Palace. As a result, more by accident than intention, the changes in the seasons and the interaction of people in the environment has been recorded.

About the artist:

Born 1947 Roseau, Tam Joseph lives and works in London. Graduated from Foundation Year, Central School of Art (1966); Slade School Art (1967); and London College of Printing (1974).

Joseph’s fine art practice reaches to areas of his consciousness and requires the constant re-evaluation of everything he knows.

His works are held in public and private collections including The Arts Council; Victoria & Albert Museum; The Museum of London; Wolverhampton Art Gallery; Kelvingrove Gallery; Ben Uri Gallery; Contemporary Art Society; Sheffield City Art Gallery; Camden Libraries; Bradford City Museum; and Newlyn Orion.

Selected exhibitions include Evolution, Tam Joseph Paintings, Felix and Spear Gallery, London (2020); Edinburgh Arts Festival (2020); Unexpected: Continuing Narratives of Identity and Migration, Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, London (2016); and Black Art in Focus, Wolverhampton Art Gallery (2016).

Residencies include The Tabernacle, Powis Square, London (1994).

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.
