Special notice

On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial interest in the outcome of the sale of certain lots consigned for sale. This will usually be where it has guaranteed to the Seller that whatever the outcome of the auction, the Seller will receive a minimum sale price for the work. This is known as a minimum price guarantee. This is such a lot.

Lot Essay

"I am trying to do two things that are seemingly contradictory, but are actually complimentary. One is immediate visual impact. The second is that the image unfolds slowly over time, and repays prolonged looking. To that end, there is a great deal of consideration put into the structural underpinnings. How the compositions are made to work as structures that hold these things, or contain these things. There are certain rhythms and velocities, and directions that the eye gets engaged with."
—David Salle
