At the Auction Collective we love art and we want to make it easy for anyone to have a piece of art in their life. As a result, we have partnered up with Narcissus Arts to bring you 50 beautiful landscapes, and landscape themed works of art, from some of the most talented and inspiring artists of today. But why this theme?
The world in the last two years has been full of surprises, some good and many bad. It has become more hectic and uncertain. International and national politics, the rise of a 24-hour social media culture and the growing demands on our careers and employment, have all contributed to make the world a little more stressful each day.
It was out of this that the idea for this auction was born. Landscape art has always provided a removed viewpoint of life: the artist steps back from the scene and paints, sketches, photographs or even sculpts what they observe - a voyeur of reality. And it is through these finished artworks that it is possible for us, the viewer, to also escape the madness, take a deep breath and view the world from a remote and refreshed perspective.
‘Far From the Madding Crowd’ brings together a collection of artworks that do just that. We have scoured high and low to find landscapes, seascapes and townscapes from inspiring artists that provide a new view on life. Yet we have twisted the rules on the traditional conventions of 'landscape art' to challenge our ideas of escapism and keep pushing the boundaries of contemporary art.
There is 0% buyer's commission - what you bid is what you pay. All artwork's are framed and ready for you take home and hang on your wall.
So come and see the exhibition, join us on the night of the auction and take home your very own bit of escapism!
