Example text

Aware of the importance of corporate branding and how an art collection could support and enhance a company’s image, he began to think carefully about what kind of work he wanted on the walls. He is the first to admit that his personal preferences play a large role in what Aspen has purchased but he enjoys working with his advisors and analysing the nuances of a particular work. He is keen not only to buy quality pieces but also to establish relationships between the works in the collection. As in many other companies he underlines that the art is not considered an asset in investment terms but that it is certainly an important part of the company’s identity and environment.

In closely analysing the content and methodology of the corporate art collection one can often lose sight of the most basic common denominator. These collections exist in office environments, and all of them aim to enhance the working environment – even if the manner by which they go about it differs. Every organisation can work a little better or worse on the basis of the planning and design of their workspace. Professional performance is probably more closely associated with office furnishings and facilities than how moving or cutting-edge the art on the wall is, but it is undeniable that inspiration and creative innovation are at the heart of what most viewers look for in artworks – and what most employers want to see in their workforce.

The insurance industry has traditionally been somewhat male dominated, but this is changing and I am encouraging Aspen to be at the forefront of this trend. Whilst we have a high percentage of women in the lower ranks of our company, it is much lower at executive management level and I am keen for our company to challenge the status quo. The Alex Katz painting portrays two independent women looking confidently out at the office. I like that. They are striking and provide a counterpoint to what is still the norm within the financial services sector.
