Artmarketspace has announced the collection for well-known and highly respected filmmakers of creative and knowledge content, Andrea and Peter Hylands. Their lifelong passion for the visual arts is reflected in this substantial edit from their collection, as they look to their own future and where they will be living. The Hylands have been art collectors for many decades, with their collecting being a very personal affair with friendships and collaborations with artists around the world. The artmarketspace collection includes many artists represented in the collections of the major public galleries in Australia including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the National Gallery of Victoria. This collection includes several ceramic pieces by Australia’s most important potters.

Andrea Hylands is a film maker and ceramic artist, former senior lecture in Ceramic Design at Monash University, former President of Craft Victoria. Her work is collected around the world and is included in both major public and private collections and she holds many international awards for her work in Japan, India, USA, France, Korea and Italy. This includes a plethora of accolades including best contemporary film, multiple awards from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and was a finalist for the United Nations Association of Australia online media awards.

Peter Hylands comes from a working lifetime of designing, editing, producing, directing, researching and writing knowledge-based content in Europe, Africa, America, Asia and Oceania. He is a long-term judge of the USA web awards held in New York each year. “Our work now focuses on two things, firstly connecting cultures around the world to improve understanding and outcomes for our human society, particularly the young,” said Peter, “And secondly, describing the impact and outcomes of current human conduct on the natural world, doing so through the production of knowledge-based content. Culture and nature are related of course.”
