Peta suggested an artist whose work really appealed to me. I liked
being able to meet the artist in my home, and give her a sense of
who I am, what we were looking for, and for her to consider the
space in which it was to be hung.
The artist was very keen for the work to encapsulate something
unique about me, and this is exactly what she did achieve. She took
a couple of photos and also borrowed some ‘props’ to assist her
with the commission.
It was great to have the work delivered in person by the artist. I
think we both got quite a buzz from seeing the work on the wall.
I would highly recommend anyone considering purchasing contemporary art work to engage Peta Barwick to assist in the process. Peta has a fantastic range of various artists work in her contemporary art gallery website. Having recently purchased numerous beautiful pieces from Peta, the whole process was made so easy.
Peta’s vast design experience assisted me in choosing the best pieces that would work in my home. The whole experience is very personal, with Peta making many visits to my home to ensure that every piece fitted, flowed and complimented the interior of my home. I also got to meet the artist and talk about his techniques and gained an insight into his works.
The final process included Peta advising the best frame to compliment the art, and also organizing framing and delivery with the frame maker. I can honestly say that engaging Peta was the best decision for purchasing my art work, and I am so happy with the end result.
The Common Ground brief was unique because we were selecting works for work and residential spaces, that coexist. Peta was able to understand our need and offer a range of works that complimented the identified spaces. We were then able to work together to select the final pieces. The opportunity to meet the artist added a distinctive personal dimension to the “ownership” of the work, and also provided Common Ground with the opportunity to share with the artist our particular needs.
Once the beautiful works were selected, Peta demonstrated her usual professionalism and expertise in selecting framing to compliment where the works would be in situ which ensured a stunning final result.
