WHAT IS OCEANIC ART?

THE ART OF OCEANIA ENCOMPASSES THE ART AND ARTIFACTS CREATED BY THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF A GEOGRAPHIC REGION SPANNING ALMOST A THIRD OF THE WORLD’S SURFACE, COMPRISING SOME 20,000 PACIFIC ISLANDS AND CLOSE TO 1,800 CULTURES AND LANGUAGES.

OCEANIA IS ONE OF THE MOST DIVERSE REGIONS ON THE PLANET. 

HAWAII | POLYNESIA | MELANESIA | MICRONESIA | AUSTRALIA | NEW ZEALAND | PAPAU NEW GUINEA | INDONESIA | AND MORE INCLUDING THE LANDS OF BETEL NUT, CROCODILES, HEADHUNTERS AND THE RING OF FIRE.

MEANING OF HAWAIIAN ART and OCEANIC ART

EACH PIECE MERGES EACH PIECE MERGES SPIRITUALITY WITH AESTHETICS AND HAS RITUALISTIC, CEREMONIAL OR PRACTICAL FUNCTIONS. THIS IS NOT ART FOR ART’S SAKE. THIS IS ART THAT SERVES RELIGIOUS PURPOSES AND SOCIETAL NEEDS IN A VERY REAL WAY THAT GIVES IT SOUL AND MANA. IT SPEAKS OF PEOPLE, THEIR IMAGINATIONS, FEARS, HOPES AND ASPRIATIONS – THE SAME CONCERNS WE HAVE BUT REFLECTED IN DIFFERENT FORMS. IT IS EXCITING ART FROM A PART OF THE WORLD THAT FEW HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT.

WHAT IS ATTRACTIVE TO YOU?

“IT’S IMPORTANT TO FIND A STYLE THAT RESONATES WITH YOU,” SAYS VICTOR TEODORESCU, A SPECIALIST IN AFRICAN AND OCEANIC ART AT CHRISTIE’S IN PARIS. “SOME NEW COLLECTORS MAY REACT TO THE GRAPHIC, AND AT TIMES, DREAM-LIKE QUALITY OF MELANESIAN ART, WHILE OTHERS MAY REACT TO THE SIMPLE SHAPES AND GEOMETRIC FORMS OF POLYNESIAN ART.”
