About the work

Making this drawing, I wasn’t sure of the difference between weaving a web and being tangled up in one.

About the artist:

Born 1973 Barton on Sea, Tom Chamberlain lives and works in Bristol. Graduated from Painting at Royal College of Art, London (1999).

Chamberlain’s works denote a process of becoming, eventually congealing into possibility or illumination. His highly process-oriented technique is characterized by the methodical accumulation of marks of an almost mechanical precision. Paintings are built up of countless layers of thinly applied acrylic, while innumerable evenly spaced points of watercolor fill his drawings. What appears monochrome shimmers delicately, revealing depth and substance while evading definite form.

His work is held in public and private collections including Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin; Mona, Hobart; and Kunstsaele, Berlin.

Selected solo exhibitions include Falling Short, Laure Genillard, London (2020); Morendo, Aurel Scheibler, Berlin (2019); Open and Shut, Obra en Obra, Mexico City (2017); If Not Now, Aurel Scheibler, Berlin (2015); and Some Other Time, Scheiblermitte, Berlin (2011). Selected group exhibitions include Wow Drawing, Kunstsaele, Berlin (2020); Simply a Painting, Kunstverein, Wolfsburg (2018); Thinking Tantra, Drawing Room, London (2016–2017); Nulla Dies Sine Linea, Satellite, Berlin (2016); Domino Dancing, Plan B, Cluj (2014); System und Sinnlichkeit, Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin (2013); and Theatre of the World, MONA, Hobart (2012).

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.
