  1. Fine art photography for design projects

    Cows are funny creatures. Regarded as sacred by some but nothing more than a walking burger by others, they can be engaging and often amusing if you spend a bit of time with them. That’s what fine photographic artist Matthew Pangbourne found anyway. Having been nicknamed Mattmoo for many years and specialising in nature inspired images, it’s rather fitting that he became fascinated with these brainy bovines and can regularly be found stomping the fields to capture their unique personalities.

    This lovely creature has just been installed as a 2.1m custom-made print, filling the hallway of a contemporary home. I don’t know what her new owners saw when they chose this particular cow picture but it must have reached out to them in some way, as all art should. Maybe they just found it amoosing!

    Whether you are looking for nature inspired art for offices or contemporary photographic images for design projects, Beeseye showcases has a wonderful gallery of fine art photography. Our service is entirely bespoke and we are dedicated to producing individual pieces that suit the client and the space. Not all our images are in the gallery so do get in touch to discuss your project.

  2. Contemporary space art

    cosmic images, contemporary space art, images of space, Hubble space images, Hubble images, Hubble telescope, celestial images, space images, contemporary space photography, printed on acrylic, gilcee images, printed onto glass, outstanding art, made to measure art, bespoke artViewing planet Earth from space is an experience that few people have ever had – or are ever likely to have – but with news that fair paying passengers may be offered trips around the moon in the not too distant future, naked eye views of space and the cosmos may become more of a reality.

    For the majority though, deep space will always be viewed as an image and although this could never replace the awe that would be experienced by a naked eye view, the photographic images of space that have been taken by Hubble, a telescope that orbits Earth as a NASA project, are out of this world.

    NASA contracted the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) to create products and services that return the scientific discoveries of Hubble to the public. The originals of these fine art cosmic images were created by the Office of Public Outreach at the STScI and Beeseye is able to share some of them by offering to print them for our customers.

    These made to measure celestial images look stunning when Giclée printed onto Perspex acrylic and offer our clients the opportunity to bring a piece of the cosmos into their homes. Each image is unique and provides a window to worlds never visited, so if you are looking for fine art photography that’s a little different, we would recommend viewing our Cosmos Gallery.

  3. Say it with flowers this Valentine’s Day…

    Beautiful flowers inspire romance so we thought today was the perfect day to showcase this stunning nature inspired flora image from the Beeseye gallery.

    Available printed on acrylic, canvas, fine art paper and even as a glass kitchen splash-back, this contemporary flora image would be sure to bring the romance to any room.

    At Beeseye we offer a bespoke service and work with interior designers, hotel designers, corporate art buyers and individuals to produce contemporary photographic art of distinction.

    Do give us a call if you have a space that needs a touch of romance adding.

  4. Beeseye contemporary nature images

    Let’s face it, January isn’t a great month for most of us. The fun of Christmas is a distant memory, the weather is icy and unrelenting – and everyone’s broke! It doesn’t help when you look out of the window and see nothing but leaden skies, skeleton trees and a covering of frost – everything looks grey.

    When I was browsing the Beeseye contemporary nature images gallery this morning looking for blog inspiration, I couldn’t help but be drawn to the vivid greens of this image. I think we’re all crying out for some colour – for a sign of spring and warmer things to come – and this image sums that need up perfectly.

    The nature inspired photography found on the Beeseye website is the perfect antidote to a cold January day. I saw this fine photographic art image produced as a 1m x 3m piece of acrylic wall art in the reception area of an architects practice a few weeks ago. It was a dank and rainy day but this flora image shone out and bathed the area in warmth.

    Beeseye’s inspiring images from nature are entirely bespoke and we would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about a space that would benefit from one… or two!

     

  5. Kitchen splash

    Beeseye Kitchen splashback

    It’s a big thing ordering a new kitchen. All the choices, different styles, different colours, silver handles or nickel. Once you’ve visited what seems like a 100 showrooms, had a 1000 discussions you finally decide on the all the details you sit down to design your new space and then have it installed.

    Then you go to the tile shop and order some tiles…Job done. Seems a waste. Tiles, where the grout gets dirty after six months, where everyone else has a variation on your theme…and lets face it we all want to be individual.

    Beeseye produce toughened glass splashbacks using limited edition abstract images from nature. Totally bespoke, they are individually produced to fit your space perfectly. Each kitchen splashback we produce, using one of the gallery images, will be limited to 25 editions. It’s printed 25 times and then it’s no longer on sale…

    We provide a service to help you measure up, on complex installations (with more than one glass panel) we can come to measure your space for you, so there are no surprises on installation. We can install as well, depending slightly on where you are.

    Glass splashbacks from Beeseye are tough as nails, once in place they will last a lifetime, look amazing and be totally unique. The kitchen splashback in this image is of, anybody…no idea?…Answer – a mudpool in Iceland…I said they were unique.

  6. To Move or not to Move.

    Plug sockets. At Beeseye we produce vibrant toughened glass kitchen splashbacks with cutouts for sockets. Sometimes this is the easiest and quickest way to install your new splashback.

    Moving plug sockets seems like a right hassle, but often it’s pretty simple. Especially when you consider that the wall behind where you are going to fit the artwork doesn’t have to be perfect for the splashback to be installed.

    Beeseye kitchen splashbacks are totally opaque, as long as there’s enough wall to hold the piece up, it really doesn’t matter what it looks like. So moving or blanking off sockets doesn’t have to be expensive and you get the ability to install your artwork uninterrupted by things like plug sockets.

    The Ballerinas by Magdalena Wasiczek

    Attracting more than 20,000 entries from both professional and amateur photographers, and with categories covering a single bloom to a sweeping landscape, the International Garden Photographer of the Year winner was announced last Friday.

    Beeseye are delighted to congratulate Magdalena Wasiczek for her stunning image titled ‘The Ballerinas’.

    What the judges said:

    “This stunning image of Hydrangea petiolaris is a worthy winner of IGPOTY. What I particularly like about the shot is the way the photographer has melted the rich purples and oranges of the hydrangea into the out of focus background, creating a delicious melange of colours. The focus on the single delicate hydrangea flower is spot on, creating a striking and unusual winter portrait”.

    Clive Nichols, IGPOTY judge

    The full exhibition is now on show at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, until the 6th April. It will then tour the UK and Europe.

    If you share Beeseye Fine Art’s love of nature inspired imagery, it’s well worth a visit.
