‘Collector Katrin Bellinger loves sharing her artworks with the public and promoting the artists who made them. “One of the great pleasures in collecting is sharing,” she recently told Artsy. “Not only with people who are visiting, but by lending to exhibitions, so that a wider audience can see the works. I enjoy the feedback I get when the collection is shown. We often learn from the insights that we gather when works are on public view.’ – read the full article by Mollie E. Barnes here
“Katrin Bellinger has spent decades ‘looking over the artist’s shoulder’. In the gilt-framed master drawings and 19th-century oil sketches that line the walls of her London home, it is possible to look over the shoulders of hundreds of artists at work, into their studios, observing their practice.” – read the full article by Susan Moore here.

Gli artisti e i viaggi sono stati per secoli strettamente legati: il desiderio di esplorare il mondo oltre i confini della propria casa o studio ha provocato un’esplosione di creatività davvero sorprendente. Prima della diffusione della fotografia come mezzo di documentazione, le esperienze e gli incontri fatti in viaggio venivano catturati principalmente attraverso stampe e disegni, che oggi raccontano storie avvincenti di esplorazione personale e riflessione artistica.

The studio is a place of self-mirroring, self-haunting, a space where the artist plays out the day-to-day reality of the fantasy of being an artist.
