We believe in Beauty, we believe that art must aim for Beauty, not the comforting beauty of good sentiments, or the pictorialism made for the mediocre, but rather the beauty of art that even amends the ugly through the perfection of the form. We love the Beauty of things well done, made in the best possible way, that cannot be otherwise. We love the art that is visible to the eye.
Buying art does not mean to purchase an object, but it is rather a relationship built on trust between 3 persons: the artist, the gallerist, and the collector. The artwork is a channel. We do not intend to conform the art market, on the contrary, we want to share the experience of the artist’s creation and support the experience that leads the collector to purchase, to fall in love with an artwork.
Art is a form of investment, especially on the long term, since it can be seen as a store of value, and not only because an artwork has a price but especially because it holds an aesthetic and cultural value which does not decrease over time. We believe that, first of all, investing in art must yield the collector an aesthetic dividend. Art can also be a short-term investment and, therefore, we commit ourselves to guaranteeing the artwork traceability and appreciation thanks to the available technological protocols.
We believe that the gallery has a responsibility towards the community in which it operates, more generally a responsibility towards the artist it collaborates with and the collectors it meets. Social responsibility translates, both locally and globally, into the commitment to increasing the participation and education of people in the art system.
Transparency is essential in a global public market and even more as concerns the art market. So far, the art market has been regarded as a grey market, where oftentimes speculation prevailed, and the mechanisms of operation, validation, pricing and promotion of artists and artworks were not clear. For this reason, we fight for the market transparency.
We believe that trust is paramount to work with artists and collectors. Trust is the foundation of the relationship with the artists whose growth we support, whom we promote and whose worth and price – if necessary – we preserve. Trust is also what binds us to collectors, who commit to this relationship of passion and beauty.
We believe that art is the place of the meaning and communication and not of stupidity and provocation. Art expresses our greatest emotions, preserves our best desires, and for this reason it has a value that we recognise and protect against the nonsense and the ugly. We work to have the value of art acknowledged. We are not mere brokers, like auction houses and dealers, whose goal is to increase the price of an artist’s artwork but not its value. On the contrary, we work to promote the artist’s worth which is most of all an aesthetic and cultural value.
Art is passion and we share the artists’ and collectors’ passion; we are the channel connecting artists and collectors; for this reason, we work with the artists so that they can express their passion to the fullest, we work so that their works are known and acknowledged.
