The love of art is the true impetus of collecting. It is not the monetary worth but the intrinsic value of art that speaks to the heart. When it comes to art for art’s sake, there are no rules. Be it a high calibre or an emerging artist, an original or an edition, acquired by a long-time or entry-level collector, if a work of art speaks to us on an emotional level, if it uplifts us, makes us think, feel or react, it has won us over.

Bringing together a range of works in their different mediums by emerging & established artists alike, ‘I Don’t Need Your Money Honey All I Need is Love’, is an ode to love in all its forms, and a hats off to those who buy with their hearts. The show demonstrates the visceral reward of collecting different art forms by varying levels of artists and the beauty in which these pieces come together.

If this exhibition engages collectors and in any way helps foster the maturity of a healthy collecting system, then it has achieved its goal.
