Having rebuilt this lovely riverside family home a couple of years ago Domonic and Cindy wanted to find a piece of art that filled the space they had, brought a little bit of the outside in and captured their love of all thing nautical. After meeting up to see there space and discussing requirements we went on to install a large three panel acrylic artwork depicting a wave breaking over rocks.
The glossy nature of the acrylic reflects the light coming into the room and the transparence nature of the piece incorporates the colour of the walls within the highlight areas of the image.
EDL Associates is an independent full-service art consulting firm based in Atlanta. The company assisted in buying a $40 million art collection for CityCenter, a new development in the heart of Las Vegas. Alongside pieces by many great artists including Henry Moore, Maya Lin and Richard Long, they chose images from Matt Wain’s ‘Living’ collection to hang in the penthouse suites of the new Aria Tower hotel.
Caitlin Roberson of EDL & Associates comments:
“We had worked with Beeseye before and knew Beeseye’s style would be perfect for the natural style of this project. Beeseye offered us total exclusivity on the pieces we chose and they kept them for us for two years while we arranged the details. Working with Beeseye was delightful, they are true professionals who really do go the extra mile.”
Bespoke furniture design company Richard Baker Furniture created this kitchen for owners Alistair and Corinna.
When the kitchen was mostly installed, Beeseye artist Matt Wain went to see the couple. He photographed the kitchen, where the splashback would be installed, and chatted to the owners about what they wanted to achieve. Matt then Photoshopped various images into the picture, so Alistair and Corinna could see what different splashbacks would look like when installed.
They chose this one, which is an Icelandic mud pool.
This piece was carefully constructed so that when guests sit at the breakfast bar the three panel image ( one slightly larger panel is mounted on a door behind the kitchen wall ) you see what looks like one continuous image.
“We think it’s wonderful – our kitchen has its own art installation. You can spend hours looking at our splashback and see something different every time. When we ask people what they think it looks like, we’ve been told everything from lasagne to beer!”
Christie, employs more than 1,000 people in 17 offices worldwide. The company is a leader in visual solutions, a leading innovator in film projection and a pioneer in projection systems. So, we were very happy when they chose Beeseye to help them create a visual impact for their own EMEA headquarters.
Christie’s Kate Brennan explains:
“Beeseye came to our offices and then put together a proposal for us – suggesting images for our European offices. Working with Beeseye was very easy, they were flexible and helpful and they arranged the installation too. The pictures have been very well received by our staff and visitors alike.”
The Allen family moved to a beautiful Victorian manor house, which they have lovingly renovated, adding a stunning hand-made kitchen and dining area. The room is a perfect blend of old and new, so when the Allens needed a splashback for their aga they were looking for a statement piece that would tie together their existing aboriginal art with the room’s contemporary glass doors.
The Allens had seen an image they liked on the online gallery.
Having discovered that the family would like to take the piece with them should they decide to move back to Australia, Beeseye came up with a non-traditional solution: the image was produced on toughened glass and mounted on stainless steel posts rather than glued to the wall.
Mrs. Allen comments:
“Beeseye kept us informed each step of the way and made sure it was perfect for us. It looks wonderful, we love it and all our friends do too! It’s a beautiful image, beautifully made.”
Recently extending there family home, Polly and Matt wanted to get away from neutral colours for there interior space so commissioned Beeseye to produce a toughened glass splashback to compliment the other art the kitchen/dining room featured. There was only one image considered, a macro shot of the crystal formations around a mud pool in Iceland, not that
people would ever guess.
The artwork features one main piece behind the cooker, this is then repeated around the entire kitchen at a height of 25cm. Consisting of six panels in total the glass was glued to the wall, is easy to wash down and virtually indestructible.
