Size matters…

What do we think about buying that piece of art? More specifically what do we think about large statement pieces? Bringing a statement artwork into your home isn’t as daunting as you may think… It has the potential to change your living environment with monumental impact and inspire you to think around further inter design projects within your home or office. It doesn’t have to be that piece which ‘just fills the space…’ Having a statement piece not only finishes off a room design but also shows off your personality and tastes. Depending upon colour and content it has the potential to change your mood and energy.

As we move ever closer to spring and with an element of warmth in the air we have chosen 10 large, vibrant, statement artworks from our portfolio of emerging and established artists

“UK shoppers going on line rather than the traditional day shopping”? It set me thinking!

On the 20th February I wrote about the possibility of art fraud when buying online.  Then last week I read an article written by Reuters which was about changes to Shopping Malls as a result of more UK shoppers going on line rather than the traditional day shopping.  It set me thinking!

If I wanted a picture in the past I would have trawled the galleries.  Today I look at the websites to find the artists I like.  This reduces the time spent trailing about and gives me a short list of places to go and look.  The Internet never gives a true representation of the real article but then what I see in a gallery needs to look right in my home with my collection.  So professional galleries will always come and hang the work so that I know its right.  But the rub is that I have built up an understanding and a trust with my gallery.  It is not just about the work but also about service and trust.

So how am I going to move into the newer online way of buying those precious pieces that enhance my collection and provide the sound investment I need in the economic climate.  Well!  Firstly I am going to use the net to cast wider than I was able in the past.  But, I am then going to use my trusted relationship with my gallery to source the products where they are not available locally.  Even when they are locally available having looked and chosen I will source the product through this relationship.  We are all hooked on branding.  In the case of clothes it usually means a label that gives the confidence of quality and service irrespective of where I buy it.  In the art world the confidence that collectors seek is provided by the gallery.  So look widely but tread carefully buying through those you trust to provide a high quality service every time and certainly not the quick buck merchants who are selling work whose source is questionable and cannot be contacted when service is a problem.
