The collection was assembled by Masterworks guest curator Carole Reed, who said she noticed the artist’s work when she arrived on the island as a digital nomad in 2020.

She added: “Later I was intrigued by the inclusion of Birdsey’s work in almost every house I visited and enjoyed asking how they came to own the works, and 100% of the time, there was always the most beautiful story attached to how the painting was collected. »
