Founded in 2005, Perspective is an art consultancy specialising in the curation of contemporary art collections in a variety of corporate, healthcare, hotel, mixed use, residential and public spaces.

Our focus is to provide engaging environments through artistic interventions and creative collaborations. Projects range from the acquisition of one unique piece or commission, to the development and management of an entire collection.

A specific strategy and curatorial programme is developed for each client based on their needs and areas of interest.  Our broad international experience enables us to offer exposure to a diverse array of recent graduates, emerging and established contemporary artists.

The selection of art in each project often includes a variety of styles and mediums such as ceramics, furniture, glass, light, paintings, photography, prints, sculpture, textiles, video, and environmental art.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance.

- Aristotle

I feel strongly that the visual arts are of vast and incalculable importance.
Of course, I could be prejudiced. I am a visual art.

- Kermit the Frog

No amount of skilful invention can replace
the essential element of imagination.

- Edward Hopper

Always design a thing by considering its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.

- Eero Saarinen

One must always draw, draw with the eyes
when one cannot draw with a pencil.

- Balthus
