Selecting the Perfect Artwork for a Calgary Investment Firm
ArtMatch often works with commercial clients in Calgary who want unique and original paintings for their Calgary offices. Leith Wheeler is a local investment firm that wanted to complete a renovation with one of a kind artworks. They had been looking for the right kind of artwork for their main hallway but had no luck finding the perfect paintings. They knew they wanted local art but did not know where to go so they contacted Vandy and ArtMatch to help finish off their renovation.
Vandy went in to Leith Wheeler office for an art consultation so she could get a sense of their style and what the space looked like. For the longer wall she recommended either a series of three paintings, often called a ‘triptych’, or one large painting. Vandy suggested the beautiful painting ‘Sky Islands’ by Rosanna Marmont which features a vibrant sky and the abstracted Alberta badlands (image below). Rosanna installed the 8′ x 4′ painting and once it was on the wall it was obvious it was a fantastic choice!
On the other wall the clients really liked Daniel Culcea’s painting ‘Cavalcade’ which features five galloping horses (image below). Being a Calgary-based firm with five partners the thought the visual connection of five horses was a perfect fit. Daniel came in with Rosanna to install his painting and the new owners of the artwork had the opportunity to meet both artists. Now they have two perfect paintings for their office from local artists!
