Connecting to the coveted and cherished talismans of our time.
Over the course of 20 years, Patina has been entrusted with artistic legacies by makers from around the world. With great care, the gallery is dedicated to understanding the maker, the historic relevancy of the work and the extraordinary craftsmanship of its esteem.
Patina fosters ties with the collectors who have decided to pass these pieces on. The gallery encourages deeper communication with the artists who are informed that their works have been deaccessioned with Patina from a previous estate, as they are asked questions about the pieces. Furthermore, Patina cultivates relationships with new collectors who fell in love with an estate work of art.
The gallery continues to revel in the classic beauty of time. Cherished pieces that come to Patina are skillfully curated within its space, where they are recognized for their rare exceptionality. Honoring its unique veneration, Patina’s team endeavors to understand the purpose of a work of art and why it was made, as to create a well cared for path toward its next home.
Allison and Ivan acknowledge that the makers who created many of Patina’s estate pieces were and are masters of their craft, exercising innovative measures at the height of the 20th and 21st Century craft movements. It excites them to propel this enduring reverence in the gallery, while offering an opportunity for rare and revered works to enter back into the marketplace.
The Contemporary Estate Short Film
Allison Barnett, Patina Gallery co-founder, articulates the importance of thenew collection to the gallery.
Pieces are seminal; they impart a narrative in the artist’s life, and thereby become an expression of who the maker was during a period in their career. With immense gratitude, Patina is privileged to preserve these stories, 20-30 years after many of these works of art were made.
