BUILDING YOUR COLLECTION: ADVISOR’S TIPS

Sorelle Gallery Art Advisors

RARE IS VALUABLE. Original paintings and limited, early edition, hand-signed prints and artist proofs are more valuable because they are either one-of-kind, or one-of-a-few.

FOLLOW YOUR HE(ART). Buy what you like. At Sorelle Gallery, we promote the idea that an investment in artwork is a solid investment. Fabian Bocart, founder of the art advisory firm Tutela Capital has advised, “Invest confidentially in art, because an artwork will never be bankrupt.” Artwork holds value in more ways than one, so go with your gut.

DIVERSIFY. All types of artwork go hand in hand, so don’t get stuck in one type of medium. If you like a sculpture, try it out next to your favorite painting.

ART IS TIMELESS. Sorelle advisors are constantly searching for emerging talent, as well as renowned artists with established careers. Acquiring artwork by both new and seasoned artists adds breadth to your collection

Internationally renowned artist, John C. Traynor continues to appeal to admirers of the Impressionist movement. Establishing atmosphere with his painterly application of paint, which results in a lightly textured and often serene landscape, is essential to Traynor's process. His artwork is represented in more than one thousand private and public collections in the United States and abroad.

Self-taught painter Daniel Pollera is acclaimed for his stunning views of East Quogue and Baldwin Harbor, Long Island. While popular Pollera prints have been made available on the market, his original oils are highly sought after and more difficult to find. Pollera’s work, “creates a sense of peace and tranquility,” devoid of people, sparking reflection between the viewer and nature.

Julia Contacessi has helped many ease the transition into abstract art. Her easy to love paintings are a welcoming addition to any environment. She says of her creative process: “… there is that moment when I layer on the paint just right – so that it dances in time and space… That’s when I have to catch my breath…”. Contacessi who is entwined with Frankenthaler’s philosophy of letting the “picture lead where it must go”, is one of Sorelle’s leading artist as she continues to breakthrough the abstract world.

Lithuania-native, Alina Bs love for glass design began at Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, where she was first exposed to glass blowing, fusing, etching, casting, and staining under the instruction of Vidmantas Gutauskas, a former apprentice to Dale Chihuly. As Alina’s career evolved, she discovered her affinity for the manipulation of mirror glass using acid and paint. The organic colors and patterns that surface, in combination with the remaining reflective areas create a charged, fluid composition that continues to respond to its changing environment.
