As to Divide by Zero…
The Divide By Zero collection is a testament to the talent and creativity of emerging and established artists from around the world. As the founder and director of this collection, I express my passion for uncovering new and exciting artists and showcasing their work in a way that invites the viewer to engage with it on a deeper level.
The act of collecting art is more than just acquiring beautiful objects – it requires thinking outside the box and using one’s instinct to see beyond aesthetics. My approach to curating the Divide By Zero collection contemplates the absolute totality of each artist’s work, ultimately condensing it into a cohesive and unifying narrative.
My experience of viewing art is transformative, as I spend hours in front of a single painting, absorbing its minutest details and seeking to understand its unique moment of creativity. It is this deep appreciation for the creative process and the emotional impact of art that drives my commitment to the collection. It is a labor of love that pays homage to the artists who have worked anonymously, often for years, in the hopes of being seen and recognized.
