Purchasing art is so much more than taste, price and hue, especially when commissioning a project. It's concept to completion. The art must fit the design. It must fit the space, and it must colorfully coordinate. And that's just the basics.
Hopefully, your search for art began with finding a professional, and I don't use that word lightly. Whether you've chosen an interior designer, architect, artist rep or the artist herself, she should listen, advise, and complete, just like any profession.
This week, I had the opportunity to work with a team of professionals; architect, designer and gallery. With tablet in hand, the architect/designer listened to the building owner and designed on the spot, creating digital renderings for the visual aids.
The artwork style and color must match the proposed ambience and decor. The size and proposed hanging came down to the inch. No detail went unnoticed.
