Bijijoo (given name: Michael Todd Horne; nickname/preferred name: B) was born in Atlanta, Georgia (USA) in 1975 and has lived in New York City; Seattle, Washington; and Eugene, Oregon. B currently resides in Portland, Oregon with his wife and daughter.
Bijijoo’s paintings result from process-driven experimentation with painting media and automatic drawing, using traditional and digital techniques. He builds mixed media layers to amplify interplays of light, color, and texture. Images are conjured from chaos, in a process akin to divination. The forms that take shape trend toward human and animal: grotesque exaggerations of life, monstrous cartoons, vanitas. Narratives emerge through these interactions, reflecting struggle, celebration, and introspection. The results depict experiences, interactions, and movements frozen in a personal space and time.
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.
