CGE Partners is a private equity investment firm, supporting businesses across Europe. CGE invests in companies using technology to facilitate the worlds transitional to a more digital, renewable, secure, compliant future.
CGE Partners, having spent several years looking to engage an art consultant reached out to Art Contact. At our initial meeting, the company expressed their desire and how they wanted to have the artwork reflect their ethos of both renewable and new technology as well as for the artwork to be a talking point without being too wacky.
Art Contact set about putting forward a number of artists for each area which reflected their requirements. In the boardroom a standard artwork would not have been a solution with the vertical dominated wooden panels so something more appropriate was proposed.
In the boardroom an artwork was selected by the artist Butcher using reusable aluminium bars painted with oil and resin. The installation complements the wooden vertical lines. Works by an Italian artist re-using magazine paper to create a 3-d sculptural art work was used for the main waiting area. Other area contained works by Winter, who creates 3-d sculptural wall art with sustainably sourced sand and stone, to abstract paper-works by Ford for the staff open space. The reception and staff kitchen area also with a selection of artwork created by Brooker using re-used metal panels painted in abstract seascapes for a more calming and tranquil space.
