The collection revolves around three different levels, acquiring during the years established, mid career and young emerging artists. Behind every acquisition there is a story, an encounter, a study, a detailed study and a mad love.
Emotional involvement is especially important with the young and emerging artists, it is nice to ‘walk this path’ together and observe how their work evolves over the years.
