To my mind, in putting together Cotton Contemporary Art’s collection has not been about making loud statements, pushing boundaries, about shock value, or taking on avant garde items for the sake of being seen to have them in the collection. Others may seek the provocation or may revel in the reactions or discomfort created by such items. Contemporary Art is often associated with these traits, as of course the artists themselves make statements on what is important to them and what they see in their lives. They are certainly most entitled to express their emotions, their frustrations, their anger, their tristesse, and they do, often brilliantly, it drives their creativity. But unless they produce work that strikes a chord with me, I probably won’t be their patron or promoter. My opinion is that every piece I am associated with should give enjoyment, should evoke emotions or aid calm relaxation, especially when they are in our homes. If I enjoy, I’m confident my clients will enjoy their ownership too, We live with other people, with our animals and with our art, what we choose to put on our walls and on display is just as much part of our family as our spouses, our children and our pets. And just as it influenced me as a child, indeed producing a fascination with my visual surroundings that has endured, so I’d like to think my own children have enjoyed their visual stimuli from the art I have provided for them in clear and plain sight on a daily basis.

“Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.” – Longfellow.
