Fundamentally, our approach involves ongoing, in-depth conversations. We focus on fully understanding what our clients wish to accomplish in their unique projects. Through the art pieces they select, we weave a narrative that mirrors their desired representation, breathing life into their artistic vision.
We are masters at communicating and building consensus among cross-functional teams, including architects and interior designers. Whether working with existing spaces or conceptual projects, we respect the integrity of the overall aesthetic and room atmosphere, always considering color, scale, ambiance, and other spatial elements.
Because we do impeccable research, we are known for presenting a thoughtfully curated range of artwork options, ensuring a balanced and manageable selection. Once you select the art, we take charge of the entire acquisition process, skillfully leveraging our extensive network of local and national galleries, online platforms, auctions, and artists. We empower commercial clients to craft authentic, unique spaces that seamlessly align with their distinctive missions.
Collaborating with clients and designers, we contribute to the rejuvenation of existing spaces or the definition of new ones. On most projects, we enter discussions in the early stages of the process, working from renderings and schematic design documents to advise on key art locations. We continue to participate in those conversations throughout the life of the project and after.
Our expertise extends to framing, a critical element that can elevate or diminish the impact of art. We offer guidance on framing new acquisitions for optimal presentation, and we evaluate existing pieces in commercial collections, suggesting potential relocations or presentation changes.
The final step in the art journey is the installation, a process we supervise from start to finish, managing every detail. From simple wall hangings to complex three-dimensional pieces to large-scale paintings, our talented professional installers execute flawlessly to produce unparalleled results.
“She brought guidance and ideas for what would go well with both the aesthetics of the space as well as the energy and vibe of our culture. She spent extensive time in our office and with our team to learn about our style and atmosphere to pick just the right pieces. Our team couldn’t be happier with what Ann added to our space.”
