I’m happy to say I have representation, back in January 2015 Poli Cardenas contacted me through LinkedIn, saying he is setting up an online gallery that he likes my work and would like to represent me. Having little experience of Galleries especially online, I took advice from an artist friend saying going online and not have a physical base is ‘the way of the world these days’, it makes sense it cuts down on overheads and art fairs are now have a more of a poignant place.
Looking at Poli Cardenas impressive resume which included Goldsmiths University of London it gave me faith he has the experience and knowledge.
“O Gallery is an exciting new online gallery promoting original work from emerging and mid-career artists. O Gallery provides a modern, artfully curated online environment for artists to exhibit and sell their work. It offers art lovers a professional platform to enjoy, appreciate and purchase the work on display.”
The Gallery has only been up a couple of weeks, and so far the experience has been invaluable for me as I have learnt so much. I have been given advice about the conservation of the art work to pricing, from how to present work to the produce professional high quality prints.
I feel I have been taken under the O Gallery’s wing and it has taken me and my work new more professional level.
(Updated: as of 2017 the O Gallery has closed as Poli Cardenas looks explores other opportunities, I would like to thank him and the O Gallery for all their support.)
