Artist bio:

Rex Southwick's paintings toil with the exploration of interactions with domestic spaces in relation to ownership and aspiration, working from images sourced from building contractors and construction site visits. His highly saturated and confidently painted large scale paintings invite you to view these idealised domestic environments at an incomplete and less imposing state. The addition of labourers in his works introduces a narrative, exploring how we view and interact with environments and introducing notions of hierarchy and ownership. 

His work creates a bridge between the seemingly endless stream of idealised domestic environments found on digital platforms and the reality of these places. Paintings that remodel digital ostentation into physical images which remove concerns of ownership and status and present them in a physical form, interacting within the confines of pictorial space whilst exploiting the inherent qualities of paint.  

Popcorn Bidding: If a bid is made within the last 5 minutes of the auction’s scheduled closing time, Popcorn Bidding kicks in. Popcorn Bidding automatically extends the scheduled closing time for an auction item by 5 minutes, this is to prevent people sniping at the last second, offering the second highest bidder a fair chance to bid again. Each subsequent bid resets the clock to allow bids to be made for another 5 minutes. Once there has been no bidding activity for 5 minutes, the bidding is considered completed and no further bidding is accepted. The auction for the item is then closed. As always, the person who placed the highest bid wins the item.
