For curator Lucinda Hall, Incognito offers a win-win for artists – showcasing their work to thousands of people and helping to raise funds for a great cause:
“I have to say it is a huge privilege for me to wake up every morning and to discover a new piece of amazing art that has just been delivered to my door. And then to do that 3,000 times over; what a way to start the day!
“With almost two million views of the collection last year, Incognito offers huge exposure for artists. It has the twin advantage of getting an artist’s work out there, while also raising funds for Jack & Jill. It’s a win-win. It’s also wonderfully democratic as no one knows who has done what until after the sale and so each artist is on an equal footing with the next. With Incognito, you don’t have to spend hundreds or thousands of euros on a painting, you can get an original work of art that you love for €65!”
For tips on spotting a masterpiece, Lucinda says:
“My only advice would be that if there’s an artist taking part that you admire, try and study their work to get a sense of their approach. Then go online at Incognito.ie when the artwork goes live on 31st March, browse through the art, and then perhaps, maybe, you might well be able to spot their work. Assuming, of course, that they haven’t disguised their style just to lead you astray!”
