Notes:

The Mirror of Ink (2011) is a remodelling of the fountain from De Waal Park in Oranjezicht, Cape Town and is an immaculate example of Daniella Mooney’s technical sculptural aptitude.

Accomplished and skilful, Mooney has developed her craft to a level of critical acclaim. She has exhibited widely both locally and internationally. Recent solo exhibitions include Paintings at Blue Mountain School in London and Tripping Stone / by Oona Calx at Otomys in Melbourne, both in 2021. Group exhibitions in the same year include Between Strangers at Nuweland Gallery in Oosterzee and Hot Mess II at Nåpoleon Complex, Berlin.

Notably, her sculptural work was included in the book 100 Sculptors of Tomorrow (2019), authored by Kurt Beers, Director of the well-known Beers London Gallery and art historian and critic Richard Cork. The publication was the culmination of a major, democratic open call for up-and-coming sculptors and an internationally renowned jury identified the most exciting names in sculpture at the time.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:


 

Logistics

While we endeavour to assist our Clients as much as possible, we require artwork(s) to be delivered and/or collected from our premises by the Client. In instances where a Client is unable to deliver or collect artwork(s), Aspire staff is available to assist in this process by outsourcing the services to one of our preferred Service Providers. The cost for this will be for the Client’s account, with an additional Handling Fee of 15% charged on top of the Service Provider’s invoice.

Aspire Art provides inter-company transfer services for its Clients between Johannesburg and Cape Town branches. These are based on the size of the artwork(s), and charged as follows:

Small (≤60x90x10 cm): R400

Medium (≤90x120x15 cm): R800

Large (≤120x150x20 cm): R1,200

Over-size: Special quote

 

Should artwork(s) be collected or delivered to/from Clients by Aspire Art directly, the following charges will apply:

Collection/delivery ≤20km: R400

Collection/delivery 20km>R800≤50km

Collection/delivery >50km: Special quote

 

Packaging

A flat fee of R100 will be added to the invoice for packaging of unframed works on paper.

 


International Collectors Shipping Package

For collectors based outside South Africa who purchase regularly from Aspire Art’s auctions in South Africa, it does not make sense to ship artworks individually or per auction and pay shipping every time you buy another work. Consequently, we have developed a special collectors’ shipping package to assist in reducing shipping costs and the constant demands of logistics arrangements.

For buyers from outside South Africa, we will keep the artworks you have purchased in storage during the year and then ship all the works you have acquired during the year together, so the shipping costs are reduced. At the end of the annual period, we will source various quotes to get you the best price, and ship all your artworks to your desired address at once.

Aspire Art will arrange suitable storage during, and cost-effective shipping at the end, of the annual period.

 


Collections

Collections are by appointment, with 24-hours’ notice

Clients are requested to contact the relevant office and inform Aspire Art of which artwork(s) they would like to collect, and allow a 24-hour window for Aspire Art’s logistics department to retrieve the artwork(s) and prepare them for collection.

 


Handling Fee

Aspire Art charges a 15% Handling Fee on all Logistics, Framing, Restoration and Conservation arranged by Aspire.
