Investing in fine art often requires more than collecting art itself. Great masters will learn the rules just to break them, and they often experiment with color and shadow in combinations that natural light fails to illuminate in full detail. Fine art lamps help you maximize your investment by bringing out textures and patterns that would otherwise remain hidden from view. Fine art lamp lighting constitutes an art form in itself, providing a decorative element that can blend with any number of design schemes. Illuminations Lighting and Design can help you choose the very best lamps for your fine art lighting and bring a whole new level of sophistication and beauty to your home. ILD acts as both a vendor of fine art lighting lamps and a design-consulting emporium whose many years of training and expertise can combine the technical with the creative and deliver a comprehensive solution unsurpassed in our industry.
The trick to fine art lamp lighting is to emphasize the artwork without the distracting appearance of the lights themselves. We often employ low voltage solutions with a less-is-more approach to equipment itself. Utilizing our advanced technical understanding of how light works and how it behaves, we can employ such tools as framing projectors and low voltage accent light lights to showcase your artwork. This knowledge proves especially useful to eliminating shadows cast by improperly positioned fine art lamp lights. After all, why would you want to invest a small fortune in a painting only to hide it in shadow? With our expertise in the actual physics of electricity and light, we can design a fine art lighting theme with lamps and projectors that minimizes equipment visibility, maximizes color and style, and eliminates shadows that obscure details and ambience.
Illuminating color often proves the most challenging task of any designer working with fine art. Artificial light casts a different visible spectrum than natural light, and consequently certain color combinations employed by the artist may remain undetected in any scenario other than direct sunlight. Do not be tempted to put such art near the window, however. Ultraviolet radiation can break down paint and even damage certain canvases, especially if the piece is many decades or even centuries old. Our team of experts has developed synthetic alternatives to natural light by positioning specific types of halogen lamps around fine art pieces and producing a spectrum equivalent to sunlight without harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation. This produces an illumination scheme reflective of the artist’s original vision, highlighting colors and patterns practically invisible to lesser artificial spectrums. When working with such sophisticated equipment, one must remember aesthetics as well as function. Most companies that install fine art lamps and lighting equipment simply do not take the time to study the many finer nuances of art itself, and few have little interest, if any, in creating a layout equivalent to the work of a professional designer. On the other hand, Illuminations Lighting and Design has invested years of training and thousands of dollars to equip its staff with a knowledge of interior decorating that makes our method of fine art lamp and lighting design truly one of a kind in our industry.
