ART STRATEGIES

From the design stages of a new building to enlivening an existing workspace, Art Strategies Australia has developed systems to document each project, provide detailed budgets and timelines and carefully source project-specific artwork. Every project is tailored to the budget, the audience and the environment.

Want to develop an art collection but don’t know where to start, what budget is appropriate or what to collect to ensure future value and capital growth? Art Strategies Australia produces thoroughly researched policies and rationales on the benefits, costs, risks, capital appreciation, maintenance, security and insurance issues which need to be considered with any collection.

Hospitals, Treatment Clinics and Aged Care Facilities are places where patients, residents and healthcare professionals have unique needs. Making the right artwork decisions is crucial, and our work in this area since 2003 has given us a strong insight into the particular demands of these specialised environments. Significant international research has shown the benefits of artwork in therapeutic environments including faster healing time, reduced stress and anxiety and increased feelings of wellbeing. Art Strategies Australia has many case studies and testimonials to demonstrate its work in healing environments.

Wall inventories are a vital part of our planning process for new buildings. Close consultation with architects and building managers ensures issues such as lighting, security, handrail and window placement all fit with the desired project outcome and budget. We provide ‘pre-visualisations’ of selected works in situ, so that the end result can be clearly envisaged by the client – no surprises. At each stage, supporting documentation ensures all relevant personnel are fully informed.

From a series of delicate framed watercolours to visually stunning eight metre wide photographic murals, Art Strategies Australia can offer museum-standard printing on archival quality paper. Our attention to detail and stringent quality controls with each project, ensure the value of your artwork is maintained and can be enjoyed for many years. Our established relationships and unique production methods mean substantial economies of scale can be enjoyed on larger projects.

Art Strategies Australia has researched literally hundreds of image libraries around the world to select and secure the most beautiful and unusual imagery. Many of these high quality images can be used at very large sizes to create a stunning impact. Whether it is a collection of vintage car or travel posters, European landscapes, still life, local scenes, cityscapes, old masters, nature or abstract images, we pride ourselves on sourcing unusual and high quality images for every project.

Companies with a long tradition of service often like to acknowledge their beginnings, their people, their culture and their history, especially in important public spaces such as entry foyers. Rather than a boring brass plaque, a much more engaging idea is to create a fascinating 'history wall'. This can be designed to incorporate photographs alone, or a combination of moving images, graphics and photos. Art Strategies Australia can research, design, produce and install engaging, personalised History Walls to suit most budgets.

Art Strategies Australia has developed a product especially for aged care facilities; 'Memory Lanes'. Considering the facility's location and the age, mobility and ethnic mix of clients; images are carefully researched to provide maximum enjoyment for residents as well as enhancement of the spaces. Images can trigger happy memories and reminiscences of the past.

Recent Memory Lane themes:

  • Vintage travel posters of holiday destinations
  • Rare images of classic cars for a men's recreation / billiards area
  • European scenery reminding migrants of their homelands
  • Vintage botanical art
  • Historic sepia photographs of the local area

Sometimes organisations already have artwork or objet d'art collections, and require an assessment of what they are worth, which items should be retained and which should be sold. If you are offered public donations of artwork, should they be accepted and under what conditions? Art Strategies Australia can conduct expert appraisals, and make recommendations for the future professional management of the collection.

Priding itself on the ability to offer a full range of services, Art Strategies Australia arranges fast, professional and secure installation of the artwork for each project.
