The Auction Collective has been created to support artists and art buyers at the lower end of the market. We want to make it easy for anyone to have a piece of art in their life no matter who they are. But this wouldn’t be possible were not for our sponsors. As we prepare for the Far From the Madding Crowd auction, we caught up with Leanne Harvey from one of our wonderful sponsors, Church House Investment Management, to hear why she wanted to get involved and what she has her eye on in the auction.

Matt Jukes’ monoprints were initially created as an antidote to the hectic life of London. The Australian born artist uses these works to escape back to his halcyon days of youth in the sunny, stress-free environment down under. Above the Sky is a beautiful example of this work and there is already a buzz around it in anticipation of its auction as part of Far From the Madding Crowd on 15 February. But we convinced him to step away from printing for a moment and chat through his work.
