Jack Esterson and Tim Newton are collectors who understand the importance of relationship within the art world. For Jack, buying out of instinct and connection, “Friendships and relationships are…completely essential.” Tim explains that many of his current friendships are with artists or other art professionals.
Neither Jack nor Tim are artists, but they express the profound experience of art as a form of communication and connection between folks, often binding together individuals from diverse backgrounds and creating a common space and community.
