About the work

The work, titled ‘The Brick Wall’, serves as a multifaceted symbol. It embodies the concepts of home, family and a Sanctuary for Protection, juxtaposed with its representation of a societal construct. The wall, constructed from stamps made of my handmade miniature terracotta bricks dipped in water-based inks, acts as a living canvas reflecting the layers of history, akin to the skin of society – showcasing its age, strength, power and possession. This  creation is a poignant letter penned in memory of my homeland, Lahore, Pakistan, evoking the vivid imagery of the beautiful red bricks that surrounded me.

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.
