During the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the world’s population has experienced a period of isolation that has wide-ranging impacts on individuals and communities. The collection of work for the ISOLATION exhibition focuses on the feelings of artists and the subsequential work that expresses their emotions during isolation.
In the explicit narrative attached to the work, artists talk of fear, loneliness, anger and concern for the future. Some discuss mental health issues, with depression and anxiety being common. In the implicit narrative, there is depth and complexity in the messages, with an apparent confusion and many changing feelings emerging.
Emerging from the gloom we can see some hope, optimism and the greater freedom for exagerrated creativity. The polluted world is healing, communities are growing stronger and we are at last caring for the elderly.
Among the complexity of emotions expressed in this collection, we will see a reflection of our own feelings. ISOLATION is a mirror to our feelings from a pandemic.
Visiting galleries, museums and art fairs is a wonderful way to view art, whether it be for buying or browsing. But if you don't have the time or you want a more personal approach to buying art then our home consulting service may be perfect for you. We visit your home, get to know you through an informal conversation, view images of art and then, if appropriate, prepare a proposal to match your needs. This is a very unintrusive approach to buying art and we have had great success in making personal connections with art and buyers.
Whether it be a car showroom or an office boardroom, we can find the perfect piece of art for any space. Our art consultants have access to a vast range of artists' style and medium and can source locally or internationally. Equally importantly, we have a good understanding of business, from brand values to employee culture. So we can match art to emotional needs as well as physical space.
If you have a requirement for a personalised approach to matching art for your business then we would love to have a discussion prior to preparing a 'no obligation' proposal.
We are reknowned for innovative and thought-provoking exhibitions, whether they be in our own gallery space or 'pop-ups' at interesting venues we partner with. Many of our exhibitions are built around a theme, which we use to challenge artists who are selected to create new work specifically for a show. Our aim is always to make a high impact on our visitors, either through a personal connection or a sensory response.
We can also be seen at selected art fairs and festivals, where we showcase artwork that is tailored to a particular audience.
