Introduction

Perspective is an art consultancy specialising in the creation of fine art collections in a variety of corporate, healthcare, hotel, leisure, residential, retail and public spaces. Our focus is to provide engaging environments through artistic interventions and creative collaborations.

Projects range from the acquisition of one unique piece or commission to the development and management of an entire collection. A specific programme is developed for each client based on their needs and interests, which might include acquisitions, exhibitions, research, valuations, conservation, fabrication, framing, transport and installation. Collaboration with architects, designers, developers and multi-disciplinary teams is often involved in each project.

The process involves exposure to an international array of both emerging and established artists and the selection of art includes a variety of styles and mediums such as ceramics, furniture, glass, light, paintings, photography, prints, sculpture, textiles, video, water and environmental art.

Art in Architecture

Always design a thing by considering its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.
Eero Saarinen

Art does not reproduce what we see, rather, it makes us see.
Paul Klee

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Leonardo da Vinci

Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.
Mies van der Rohe

I feel strongly that the visual arts are of vast and incalculable importance. Of course I could be prejudiced. I am a visual art.
Kermit the Frog

Architecture is inhabited sculpture.
Constantin Brancusi

The object of art is to give life a shape.
William Shakespeare

Artist of the Month

We have initiated a programme to select one artist to present each month as our highlighted international 'Artist of the Month'. The artists featured have been exhibiting outstanding talent in their careers and we wanted to share their work with you for possible inclusion in private residences, museums, foundations and corporate collections.
