McCloud has been interested in finding the beauty in the every day. From the website, “McCloud’s newest body of figural work touches on notions of class, particularly through his use of plastic bags. His investigation into plastic began approximately five years ago after traveling to India and seeing multi-color polypropylene plastic sacks everywhere. Observing the downcycle of these bags from their creation, to the companies that purchased them for the distribution of products, to the trash pickers in Dharavi slums, McCloud saw how this ubiquitous material passed through the hands of individuals at every level of society.”

Ed Clark (American, 1926-2019) laid canvas on the floor and created compositions of broad, color filled strokes using a push broom. The paintings are atmospheric. In 1968, while visiting Joan Mitchell in Vertheuil, he began painting oval canvases to reflect the shape of the human eye.

“Pegasus' First Visit to America in the Shade of the Flatiron Building” (1982) exemplifies Robert Rauschenberg’s “Kabal American Zephyr” series (1981–83/1985/1987–88), sculptural works inspired by nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock artist Tsukioka Yosh*toshi whose sense of “fantasy-macabre” sought to capture in his juxtaposition of found objects.

(Post 3/3) What can we learn about where collectors are buying and what is selling by reviewing “The Art Market 2023”—a digital publication produced by Art Basel and UBS and authored by Dr. Clare McAndrew? (Link to the full report in our bio.)

Private sales, whether through auction houses or dealers, have often outperformed public auctions when we are in less certain economic and political times. Sellers may prefer to keep the details of their transactions as well as the possibility of a failure to sell out of public record.
• Combining all sales of auction houses (both private and public), the auction sector accounted for 45% of the value of sales in 2022, down by 2% in share year-on-year.
• Dealers/galleries (including all online and offline retail sales of art and antiques in the primary and secondary markets) were at 55%.
• Traditional mediums still dominated dealers’ sales, with paintings, sculptures, and works on paper accounting for 82% by value in 2022. The share of digital, film, and video art rose to 5% from just 1% in 2021.
• Sales at art fairs rose significantly in 2022, as dealers exhibited at the same number of fairs on average as they had in 2019. Sales from live events increased from 27% of total sales in 2021 to 35% in 2022, but remained significantly below pre-pandemic levels in 2019 (42%).
• Maintaining relationships with existing collectors was a top priority for 65% of dealers in 2022 and ranked the highest priority overall, followed by attending art fairs. Online sales and exhibitions ranked third, indicating the dual focus of pursuing both online and offline strategies.
• One of the bigger trends in the dealer sector over the last three years has been the advance in e-commerce and digital strategies.
• Some dealers see the issue of fast-selling and overinflated markets—especially for some young artists—as part of a resurgence in the trend toward a more financial focus in the art market over the last few years.

(Post 2/3) “The Art Market 2023” produced by Art Basel & USB and authored by Dr. Claire McAndrew included interesting information about the role of wealth in the current market.

“A significant factor helping the market contract less (and recover faster) has been ample demand at the higher end of the market from wealthy collectors. Despite the widespread negative social and economic effects of the pandemic, global billionaires saw a significant boost to their wealth of almost one third in 2020 with certain industries such as technology, e-commerce, and healthcare thriving. The continued growth of this segment highlighted important differences between the pandemic and other previous financial downturns, including the global financial crisis of 2009, which resulted in the number of billionaires worldwide falling by 30% and their wealth decreasing by 45%. Growth in high-end wealth continued in 2021 with the number of billionaires and their wealth rising further, by 16% and 19% respectively, reaching an historical peak of $13.6 trillion and 2,657 individuals.

Using Forbes World’s Billionaires lists (compiled since 1987), and measuring real-time wealth in December 2022, it was evident that there was some slowing of this trajectory over the year. The reported number of billionaires dropped to 2,487 (down by 6%) and their combined wealth was down 14% to $11.7 trillion. Some of the biggest losses were in Russia, with the billionaire population down by 18% and their wealth declining by one quarter, and China (including Mainland China and Hong Kong), which lost 99 billionaires, a 16% decline year-on-year, with wealth also decreasing by 27%.”

(Post 1 of 3) As we prepare for the spring art season in New York, it is timely to review data from recently released art market report produced by Art Basel and UBS and authored by art economist Dr. Clare McAndrew.

💵 Globally, art sales were an estimated $67.8 billion in 2022—a 3% year-on-year increase—bringing the market slightly higher than its pre-pandemic level in 2019.

📊 While there was an increase, this was not the post-pandemic boom people predicted at the start of 2022 due to increasing economic and political instability as the year continued.

⬆️ The high end of the market drove growth in 2022. Public auction sales fell by 1% to $26.8 billion. The only segment that grew were artworks priced over $10 million. Dealer/Gallery sales grew by 7% to $37.2 billion with sales by those operating at the high end faring better than those operating at the lower pricing tiers.

🇺🇸 The US has retained its position as the leader in the global art market increasing its share by 2% year-on-year to 45%. The UK re-took second place with 18% while China decreased 3% to 17% of market share.

💻 While there was a further reduction in online sales as people returned to in-person events and viewings, online sales remain a tool in the tool box since the pandemic. If collectors want to vie for the best artworks, they must understand that many of their global competitors remain comfortable buying and selling online.

Re-reading “How To See” by David Salle while taking a needed break on the beach this week. This quote he uses in the intro when establishing his writing as that of how artists talk about art—not scholars, critics, etc.—is great. I love how he talks about ideas being great but ultimately in visual art success is in whether one can create that idea into a compelling form.
Our mantra to our clients is that you always, always have to love the artwork first. Do you have a visceral response that makes you want to live with the piece. The rest may be important but is very secondary. The best art, imo, is conceptually rigorous yes, but also aesthetically compelling.

Blueline produced several videos for Bookmark Indy, an Indiana Humanities initiative that both celebrates Indianapolis’ literary history and cultivates a unique Indianapolis culture by promoting this connection between author and artist.

In this video we hear Manon Voice, poet and spoken word artist based in Indianapolis, perform Mari Evans’ “I Am A Black Woman” in front of the mural of the Indianapolis icon.
