We are fortunate to have one of the most important corporate art collections of Irish and International contemporary art in Dublin. Included in the collection is 'Mostly Blue' Cléa van der Grijn.
Newly qualified Associate, Ciara Browne has chosen this piece as her favourite from our collection and she explains why:
"I grew up by the sea in County Kerry so I have always been drawn to the colour blue. This piece brings back fond memories of carefree summers spent jumping into the Atlantic.
What is also appealing to me is how simple this piece is. Although it is minimal, abstract and not securely grounded in time and space, I feel its vibrant and intense colour affecting my mood. For me, this piece captures a sense of stillness. In today's busy world it is a welcome reminder to pause for a moment every now and then."
Support of the visual arts is a large part of our CSR strategy and we are a long-time supporter of "Business to Arts", whose aim is to broker, enable and support creative partnerships between business and the arts.
