In the blink of an eye, your whole world can change.
As an interior designer, gallery owner, art consultant, or purchasing agent, you know the power art has to transform not only spaces but lives.
We all have had the moment when we looked at a beautiful piece of art and our entire perspective shifted. New possibilities suddenly emerged. A sterile space suddenly transformed into a gorgeous, welcoming sanctuary of respite and beauty. A hallway became a bold and dramatic entryway. A dining area became an intimate gathering space. In a blink of an eye, it’s as if a miracle took place. And it did.
That miracle is art.
As a believer in both miracles and art, I am just so excited to share our third annual edition of the Blink Art Resource. Our theme this year is all about the miracle of seeing art—how it transforms, how it inspires, and how it brings people, ideas, spaces, and lives together. It’s about seeing it close up in all its vibrant colors, intricate textures, and subtle details. My team and I have not only been working tirelessly to research the best-of-the-best interior designers, gallery owners, art consultants and art purchasing agents to receive the book—but some of the world’s best contemporary artists as well to feature in it. We wanted to bring the best to the best. Speaking of best, we want to celebrate them as well and so we have a new section this year—the Top 100 Gallery and Art Consultants and the Top 100 Interior Designers. In keeping with our theme to take a closer look, I invite you to visit their websites and check out the amazing spaces these successful people and organizations are creating with art.
For those of you who are familiar with the book, you’ll notice we have many of your favorite artists returning. Thanks to you, they’ve enjoyed success, received commissions, and have found permanent homes for their artwork. This year they’re showcasing incredibly captivating new works and await your call. We’re also thrilled to introduce several new and emerging artists who have just taken our breath away with their talent. Whether you’re looking for sparkling glass, intricate sculpture, richly textured paintings, or exquisite photography for your next project or space, you will most certainly find it here in these carefully curated pages.
Please don’t put this book on the shelf or on your coffee table. Use it. Dog-ear it. Add Post-Its to it. Keep it in your car. Have it on hand for all your upcoming projects. While we’re proud of the glossy pages, the beautiful artwork, and informative articles and stories about the artists, this is not a static book. It’s a working book. It’s meant to work for you.
My sincerest hope is that Blink Art Resource makes your job a bit easier and our artists more successful.
