I don’t know what to buy.How can I get some help with choosing art?
Eyemage Gallery tries to help you choose art carefully through many features on our site. Remember, there is no ‘right’ way to select art, so you should just choose what appeals to you.
First, try using our filters on the Artworks section. They let you shortlist artworks by colour, placement etc, which will really help narrow your choices down. As you browse, use the ‘share’ button to compile a list of favourites that you can, share with someone else. Once you’ve narrowed your choices down even further, try browsing through to see what it looks like, and really visualize the artwork in your home. If you still need help, get in touch with us through our art advisory team, who’ll come back to you with a shortlist.
What is art advisory?
There may be times when despite all your efforts, you haven’t found a piece of art that really speaks to you. Or, you may have a specific need in mind – like matched pieces, or some specific artist – that you couldn’t trace on the site. Or you may be an interior designer who needs a large number of artworks to do up an entire home or office space. Whatever your need, our art advisory team will help you find, shortlist, visualize and finally purchase the art of your dreams. We will take your requirements, identify and shortlist works, and even create a lookbook, so you can find the right piece of art.
How do I choose between different mediums like Baryta Paper, Silver Halide etc?
It is true that different mediums all have qualities unique to each of them. For example, each artist have their unique medium. Itg depends on which art is appealing to you.
However, at Eyemage Gallery, we’d always recommend that you choose a piece of art not by the medium but on the basis of how it speaks to you. Keep in mind though, that different mediums require different kinds of care and handling, so you might want to eliminate choices on this basis. For example – moist and humid climates aren’t the best environments for paper works, and they’ll need to be glass mounted.
Other than these considerations, purchase a piece of art that you like and enjoy.
Will the photograph on the site be the same as it will look in real life?
The photographs on the Eyemage Gallery site go through many quality checks before it is uploaded, so it’s as close to the original as you’ll get in a photo form. If anything, the work will usually look better in reality. However, the impact of art depends on many different things - the size, the mount, the frame, the light received on the surface, and many other factors.
What are prints?
Prints are reproduction of an original artwork, printed on paper or canvas. Prints are a great starting point for someone wishing to start collecting art as they are affordable and low maintenance. Buy a print of a great piece of original art if you really want to see how art can transform a room or a space. However, prints will never have the same impact as the original artwork, not the least because the medium and size are different than the original. Also, they don’t have intrinsic value, and so can’t be looked upon as investments.
What are open edition prints? How are they different from limited edition prints?
Open edition prints are reproductions of an original piece of art on paper or canvas, and can be re-printed as long as the artist wishes them to be available. .On the other hand, limited edition prints are printed by the artist who is a print maker and usually prints a limited series. These prints can be etchings, wood cuts, lithographs, or serigraphs. They are hand printed by the artist and normally are numbered as ‘ 1 of 10’, ‘2 of 10’ etc.. These are as good as original works of art.
