Back in February, The Art Group team attended Spring Fair, where we officially unveiled our new Premium Edit. We had a fabulous four days exhibiting, it was great to receive so many visitors to our stand – it proved to be the perfect platform from which to launch our prestigious Premium Edit.
Showcasing the most innovative of techniques and finishes, these beautifully crafted products are designed to take centre stage, we were confident that they would be well received, but we were thrilled at the incredible response, with these exclusive pieces generating more interest than we dared to have dreamed!
So, what exactly is our Premium Edit? Displaying the very best techniques and finishes, these are the kind of pieces that are shaping today’s interiors. From opulent gold foil embellishments to prints on aluminium and crystal-clear acrylic, these beautifully crafted products are designed to take centre stage in any room.
While the entire collection is uniquely stunning, stand out pieces at Spring Fair were the gel embellished canvas from popular artist Michael Sanders. With two pieces in the exclusive premium collection (A Bright Day and Gulls at Sea – above right), both with subtle touches of lightly glittered gel resin, which create an elegant shine across each canvas so that they shimmer in the light. Set in a thin, stylish grey frame, these beautifully hand-embellished coastal prints will elevate any space.
Another piece that received an overwhelming response and is arguable the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Premium Edit, is Summer Thornton’s Leopard (below). This incomparable print on aluminium is the ultimate statement piece! The vibrant butterflies shine electric blue when light hits the board and at 100 x 141 cm, it will bring the wow factor to any room.
Another popular technique that can be found on a number of the key Premium Edit pieces, is gold foil embellishment on canvas contained in a contemporary thin black frame. Modern abstracts featuring striking metallic accents and textured hand paint, with flecks of gold delivering the perfect glamour statement. Includes pieces from Charlotte Vale (Envy and Maldives – above left) and Soozy Barker (Solace in Gold no 2 and The Turning Tide)
Hand painted embellished canvases are also a well-liked format, with Premium Edit pieces including prints from ever-popular artist Scott Naismith (Arran Blue and Yellow Matter 1 – below) where hand painted accent create wonderful textured highlights on bold abstracts in a stylish dark grey frame. A highly modern finish for contemporary living.
The Premium Edit also features a unique circular print, crystal clear acrylic prints, digital print on board as well as a host of premium framed prints from artists such as Hope Bainbridge, Susan Nethercote, John James Audubon and Sam Toft to name but a few. There really is something for all styles and tastes.
The Art Group are now in full planning mode for Index Dubai. which runs May 24th – 26th 2022. We will once again be showcasing our Premium Edit, alongside a selection of pieces from some of our most popular artists. We can’t wait to take our Premium Edit to the UAE and a whole new audience!
