NEWS RELEASE:

A new online portal designed to create a virtual market for modern and contemporary

visual art is aiming to revolutionise the way art is bought, sold and researched

throughout Australasia.

Launching today to Australia and New Zealand markets, Ocula (ocula.com) is the first

online art portal and market news source, incorporating online auction and private

sales capabilities, that caters to the Australasian art market.

Ocula launches with more than 1,000 art works spanning all mediums listed for sale

through its network of invited, leading contemporary commercial galleries from both

sides of the Tasman.

Participation in the Ocula network for galleries is by invitation only with founding

galleries including some of the region’s most respected names: Anna Schwartz Gallery,

Jensen Gallery, Michael Lett, Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sullivan + Strumpf Fine Art,

Sutton Gallery and Tolarno Galleries.  This gallery network will be expanded into the

Asia Pacific and South American regions over the next year.

Co-founders Christopher Taylor and Simon Fisher believe Ocula will stimulate the market

by allowing art enthusiasts to research, buy and sell art around the clock and from any

location.

The site features world-leading technology that creates 3D virtual galleries in which

auctioned art works are presented as if they were being viewed in an actual gallery.
