The Finkelstein Files: Art Appreciation 101

Why does art matter?? For without perspective, life would be awfully dull!  It is our most expressive form of sharing. Art matters because it illustrates the human experience—the wonder of it, the bewilderment of it, the whimsy of it, and so much more. We would not be connected so deeply without the existence of art.

The arts matter because they help us see the world from different perspectives. They give us empathy and help us understand people, places, periods of history, and issues with which we may otherwise be unfamiliar. They comfort us in grief and energise us in celebration. They are important because they can act as a catalyst for change…they can start a revolution! The arts ignite something in our brains that I can’t explain, but I know it’s essential for life.

“Art can transform thoughts and ideas and can take us to different times and places.

Particular works create moments for reflection and provide an opportunity to pause “

Tony Ellwood, Director, National Gallery of Victoria, April, 2020

Are you a newbie to the art of collecting? Here is a substantial reason how you can start your very own art collection! Post July last year, if you have a registered ABN for a business which is turning over under AU$30 million annually, an art work upto $30,000 will be fully tax deductible under current ATO regulations.

So effectively, you could purchase 5 x paintings at $30,000 each & have something to show for $150,000 taxable amount owing. No better time to invest in an art collection! Read more HERE by arts accountant specialist & valuer, Michael Fox regarding the recent ATO updates.
