ABOUT:

“I am an art dealer specializing in museum-quality Oceanic Art-those traditional tribal objects from the South Pacific region that through the creativity of their maker have passed from artifact into the realm of art. While I have a master’s degree in African and Oceanic art history from the University of California at Santa Barbara, I credit the bulk of my expertise to the 46 extended field-collecting trips into the more remote areas of Papua New Guinea. It was in the villages where literally thousands of objects passed through my hands that I gathered the knowledge and eye for age, authenticity and quality. Now with over 20 years in the market I strive to acquire and sell only the very best objects I can find. In the years since I have stopped field collecting I have focused on finding great pieces fresh to the market from private collections all over the globe. So I welcome you to peruse my website and call or email me directly with any comments, questions or collecting interests. In addition, if you currently have a collection of older South Pacific objects that you would like to sell or understand their marketability I would love to hear from you.” [1]

Who were they?… Why did they come?… What did they leave behind?… Where did they go?… Will they return?…
