This past year, I had the pleasure of working with James Robertson Art Consultants Inc., a company established in 2002 to create inspiring and distinctive art collections in concert with leading design firms:
"A lean team of six based in Toronto, the company has worked not only on several prestigious Canadian assignments (it decorated the lobby of the Hazelton Hotel), but also on major projects in the United States, China, South Korea, Japan and the UAE. The firm is often recommended as an art consultant by the New York and Toronto-based interior design practice of Yabu Pushelberg on sites it’s working on. 'Of course, we must compete against the other bidding consultants for the job,' says Mr. Robertson, a graduate of the International Academy of Design." -
As an art consultant in this company, I refined my ability to appreciate works of art in relation to the contexts in which they are positioned. I learned how these contexts can transform and compliment a work of art, and how a work of art can similarly affect a given space.
Through James Robertson Art Consultants, I also worked toward designing art collections for Toronto design venues Avenue Road and Hollace Cluny. In so doing, I worked with an array of contemporary artists including Scott Eunson, Dennis Lin, Mary Judge, and Gustavo Von Ha.
