Grosvenor Place, Sydney, Chubb Insurance, Art Collection Curation
Art Pharmacy Consulting recently completed an exciting new project with Chubb. As the international insurance firm moved into their new Australian Head Office, Art Pharmacy Consulting developed their contemporary art permanent collection. Residing on Level 38 of the Harry Seidler & Associates designed Grosvenor Place, in Sydney, the new collection focuses on the unique beauty and diversity of the Australian landscape.
Working closely with the insurance firm, Art Pharmacy Consulting director Emilya Colliver said she was given a lot of freedom, ‘ Chubb were great to work with, they had a strong idea of what they wanted - Australian landscapes - but also gave me a lot of freedom in choosing artists and artworks for their new permanent collection.’
The collection consists of magenta-filled skies around Uluru, as captured by Scott Leggo, camels on Broome’s Cable Beach, photographed by Jarrad Seng, Dave Gleeson’s images of Noosa, and stunning images of Snow Gums at Falls Creek, Mount Buller and Bogong High Plains, as shot by Tom Psomotragos.
There are further artworks by the acclaimed Ilya Genkin, Andrew Pavlidis, Elise Hassey and Sophie Argiriou of landscapes as diverse as South Australia, the Great Barrier Reef and the Victorian coastline.
‘The project was a big one,’ Emilya Colliver said. ‘Building a new permanent collection is always a huge, but exciting, task and it’s terrific that Chubb are actively supporting Australian artists through developing such a locally driven collection.’
