Sculpture specialist Pangolin London has launched Sculpture Source, claimed to be the world’s first and only online platform dedicated to collecting sculpture, and the only offering of its kind changing the way we buy and engage with sculpture.
Pitched as the ‘Net-a-Porter’ of the art world, Sculpture Source is at the forefront of a new wave of buying art in the digital age, as for many the prospect of buying sculpture can seem a daunting one. Sculpture Source is unlike any other platform thanks to its specialised search criteria and advanced filters which have been designed to make buying sculpture an accessible, enjoyable and efficient experience.
Created for sculpture lovers and curated by sculpture experts with over 40 years of expertise, Sculpture Source has been borne of a passion to source and promote the very best selection of sculpture, from cutting edge contemporary to the traditional. From quirky items to traditional masterpieces, Sculpture Source offers an incredible range of works for any space or budget.
Sculpture Source helps interior designers, art consultants and collectors to make well-informed acquisitions supported by careful curation and quality assurance. It does this with the addition of specially-curated collections and editorials making it more than just a selling platform.
Pangolin London has designed the website to allow collectors the opportunity to browse for artworks that cater to their unique and individual style, whilst also introducing them to the best sculptors creating today. With a wide-ranging selection of styles and media to suit individual tastes, Sculpture Source has been specifically designed so that the viewer is not overloaded with a never-ending scroll of works where curatorial integrity has been lost.
Each artist and their work will be strictly vetted for quality and craftsmanship and high quality, authentic images and information, combined with sculpture specific search criteria, to assist collectors in selecting the perfect work for any space or budget. Sculpture Source plans to expand its selection by including new artists every month, with a range of materials. Works will range from £500 upwards with a strong selection of indoor and outdoor sculpture as well as informative curated collections and editorials.
Founder and Director Polly Bielecka says: “Sculpture offers a wonderful way to transform a space and add focus. As a genre sculpture is having an extraordinary moment. Indeed, there is more sculpture to enjoy and collect than at any time in history which offers collectors a fantastic opportunity to bring an inspiring sculpture into their home or garden. Over the past 15 years as a sculpture gallery we have found the other art selling platforms to be lacking when it comes to sculpture specifically –so we’re using our expertise to build our own”.
Pangolin London will be working with shipping partners and art financiers to make the buying process as simple as possible for the collector. Additionally, their affiliation leading European sculpture foundry, Pangolin Editions, is a unique part of this specialist service. Sculpture Source offers a home for sculpture by presenting the best British and International sculptors in one place and plans to expand its selection in the future by collaborating with the other partnering galleries.
This autumn, Pangolin London celebrates its 15th anniversary, and sees Sculpture Source as a part of the gallery’s commitment to push the boundaries of their specialism in all its forms. As one of the UK’s leading sculpture galleries, Pangolin is renowned for focusing on the historic developments of British Sculpture as well as the cutting-edge contemporary at their large gallery space in King’s Cross.
This new and unique platform provided by Pangolin London will expand the joy of collecting sculpture beyond the scope of the traditional gallery model to encompass the best British sculptors, whilst maintaining the expertise and assured quality of buying from a highly reputable gallery.
Sculpture Source will be available for collectors and sculpture lovers to use this autumn.
