We enjoy the process of introducing our clients to the process of collecting art for their homes and businesses. These are a few of the exciting moments in the journey to acquire and install significant works into our projects.

Pat Brassington – Feature Artist

Artwork in a home should not be considered as an extension of the interior or merely as wall adornment. We like to think that a considered work of art or collection should elevate the experience of the viewer, generating thought, conversation, and a sense of engagement with its occupants. Artists such as Pat Brassington fall into the realm of the provocative and encourage conversations that challenge convention.

Berlinde De Bruyckere – Feature Artist

We are often asked by clients to assist with curating unique pieces of art, and sometimes even entire collections for their new homes. Art comes in many forms, and contemporary art requires more consideration than simply hanging a painting on a wall and finding a place for a sculpture. An example of this kind of thoughtful consideration for contemporary art was the acquisition of an artwork by Berlinde De Bruyckere called ‘Romeu My Deer’ for a project in Albert Park…

‘Dontworry’ by Mark Hilton

Often a work by artist Mark Hilton will draw a viewer into its aesthetic appearance and intricate craftsmanship. Once captivated by its initial appeal, it reveals a palpable message about very tough subjects. While drawing from personal experiences, the impact of the broader message is universal and relatable. This is especially true of his work, Dontworry where the artist has created an installation of the words from finely detailed relief sculptures. B.E Architecture has introduced two of our clients to the work who have purchased individual letters to be included in their homes.

Installation of light work by Nathan Coley

We enjoy introducing our clients to the concept of putting together a collection of art for their homes, working with galleries, artists and art auctions. It is our philosophy that the integration of art with a house is different than selecting a decorative element. We believe that art should be something that engages someone on an ongoing basis and encourages thought and discussion.

One of the significant works collected for our client at St Vincents Place has just been installed onsite. The lightwork HIAPWNEH by artist Nathan Coley, was acquired…
