Being an Art Month Ambassador, I was privileged to visit a couple of art collector’s private homes in Sydney last year. Each home had a very different style, but they had one thing in common: they were personal and liveable homes, homes with heART. They were colourful, layered with texture, and fascinated the visitor with an unpredictable placement of artworks throughout the home. Three-dimensional objects stuck out on living room walls, sculptures decorated side tables, shelves, and windowsills, and a video installation, almost randomly placed on the floor, had meditative effects on the viewer. The juxtaposition of kitsch objects, unknown painters and famous artist’s works next to each other made the arrangements even more intriguing.
