Local Artist Mark Kingston Sells to Major Collector
Roche Products Australia Invests in Local Talent
SYDNEY – Pharmaceutical major Roche Products, a company with a strong tradition of art collecting, recently acquired three paintings by Sydney artist Mark Kingston.
Roche’s global art collections are known to include works by modernists Picasso, Monet and Matisse, along with older masters Raphael and Titian. Its latest purchase heralds a new direction for the Sydney arm of the company – investing in local rising talents such as Kingston.
“The family that owns Roche has a long tradition of collecting art,” says Kingston. “Globally, the company has built up an impressive collection over the past hundred years. It’s fantastic to see such a massive global business enriching the cultural landscape of its customers by supporting local artists like myself.”
Roche spokesperson Stephen Tracey says, “Mark Kingston’s paintings are high quality pieces and whilst not the motive for our purchase we would expect them to increase in value over time. They reflect Roche’s interest in supporting our local environment which bears heavily on how our Australian culture unfolds.”
