HOLLANDRIDGE works on residential, corporate and hospitality projects working directly with clients and frequently with interior designers. We take on single picture searches as well as curating larger collections, commissioning and finding art by both emerging and established contemporary artists. To extend our reach and capabilities further we often collaborate on larger projects with joint founder Alex Hammersley of Alex Hammersley Art.
We also source artwork from earlier periods for clients interested in collecting across the centuries from Old Masters to established 20th century names.
Whilst we specialise in fine art and sculpture, we frequently work more broadly across the decorative arts sourcing antique furniture, ceramics, glass, clocks and textiles to name a few areas. Drawing upon our talented pool of living craftsmen we fulfil briefs to source across the full spectrum of decorative arts in the contemporary sector.
