Ocula Art Services


The Ocula Art Advisory, Valuation and Appraisal services are described below. We draw upon a wealth of over 20 years experience and our research assets to deliver a clear and true picture for our clients. The sections below give more information about our services, and at any time please feel free to contact us.

Art Advisory

The Ocula Art Advisory service is client focused, we listen closely before we offer a point of view. We work alongside a collector, whether new or experienced, to achieve their objectives and seek new horizons. Discretion and confidentiality is paramount and we recognise the importance of working as part of a team when a commission is undertaken, be it private or corporate.

We have worked with many major corporates as well as prominent collectors to achieve some exciting acquistions. Our approach is that imagination applied rigorously can achieve great results and small budgets are not a constraint. For more information please contact us.


Ocula's directors have over 25 years combined experience valuing art. We keep abreast of changing values as well as access to historical records and the latest sale results. Valuations for insurance or asset management as well as personal and legal requirements are undertaken. Our service is confidential and discrete, we are very careful about the storage of valuations and dissemination of information is totally under instructions from the client only. 

Our valuations are comprehensive and very competitively priced. For those who live outside Auckland or Sydney it is easiest to use our online process, just click here. However if you are in either of those cities then you may wish to contact us, rather than submitting artworks for valuation online.


Ocula provides free appraisals of artworks. We consider an appraisal to be an assessment of the current market value of an artwork. As we provide this at no cost it will be made clear in any communication that it is an appraisal and not a valuation. If you wish to complete an appraisal submission through our online process then click here.

If you wish to contact us about an appraisal for auction, private sale or for your consideration please click here.

Private Sales

Ocula offers a Private Sale service. If you are seeking discretion and less exposure then a Private Sale may be suited to your needs. Ocula has many clients who are also inclined to purchase this way, and so we can broker a sale sometimes quite quickly.

In the first instance it’s best that you discuss your needs and goals with one of our specialists. To email Simon Fisher please click here or Christopher Taylor, click here. If you would like to speak to one of our specialists in person you can by calling 1800 045 308 in Australia or 09 303 3126 in New Zealand.
