Vedo – Art that matches your Vision

Vedo Sculpture

November saw the launch of a new art consultancy – VEDO. Karina Phillips of Gallery DIFFERENT and Jessica Franses of Vitruvian Arts Consultancy have joined forces to provide a unique service which aims to match the vision and ethos of the client to inspiring artwork.   Both have considerable experience working both with domestic and corporate clients, but want to take the service that both of their companies individually are able to offer to a new level. The aim is to utilise their experience and expertise to source artwork from a wide range of artists and other art professionals to provide the best possible solution for the client. Most people are already aware that art can be life enhancing, but at Vedo we believe that the art in your building or home has the power to do so much more. It can reinforce the brand message of the company, communicate the values and ethos to clients, visitors and employees and at the same time, with wise choices, can become part of the company’s or individual’s investment portfolio.

 

Vedo has a wide range of artists on its books. The November event showcased two emerging contemporary artists alongside work by a celebrated post war abstract expressionist, and a display of sculpture by some of the country’s leading sculptors.

 

Christopher Hauser is a German born photographer whose work is already in many European collections, and Ingo Glaetsch, whose background is in architecture is a distinctive painter whose work is well known across the Middle East. Their work sat very well together and each artist gave a presentation about their work on the two launch evenings. Gallery DIFFERENT represents the work of Denis Bowen who has work in the Tate’s permanent collection. A series of his large abstract canvases from the 1970’s to 1990’s were available to view.

In the lower gallery a series of maquettes from sculptors such as Maurice Blik, Johannes Von Stumm, Guy Portelli, Paul Day, Peter Randall-Page and Anthony Quinn were shown alongside a presentation of some of their monumental works that have been commissioned.

 

 Other speakers included Lawrence O’Hana, who has advised leading companies such as Lehman Brothers and Taylor Wessing on their corporate art collection and Justin Elcombe, a property developer who has experience of involving artists in community projects which assisted in avoiding local disaffection with unstoppable urban development. In both cases it was inspiring to learn how art enables people to ‘take ownership’, whether it is of the company they work for, the company they do business with, or the community in which they live and work.

 

The guests for the two events encompassed architects, property developers, interior designers as well as art advisors, artists and gallerists, and provided a valuable networking opportunity for all of the attendees.

 

 

It is intended to run these showcases at regular intervals and to continue to bring exciting emerging art alongside the global names to a wider audience.
