Obviously, as a gallery, we sell a lot of art – but the reasons are often so varied – its a gift – or – it’s for investment purposes – or – its for a company collection – or it was to finish a particular look in a new home or during a commercial renovation maybe – but the most often and our absolute favourite is – we just couldn’t get it out of our minds.
Even though art is often a long term investment and will most definitely help ‘anchor’ a certain look you might be trying to achieve, really, it is always the most fulfilling when you have fallen in love with a piece first. It perhaps should have caught you unawares, made you stop in your tracks a little bit, even sneaked back into your mind later on and again and again. The best art purchases are those that really speak to you personally, that have a meaning that maybe no one else would even understand, but you would. That brings you somewhere; transports you to a time in your life or a space that you felt moved in – or that reminds you of a special person.
That’s what art is – that’s what art does.
