Jones Lang LaSalle exhibit Little Van Gogh


Southampton, 11th March 2013 -   Jones Lang LaSalle is showing support for the Arts by exhibiting the works of up and coming artists in the Southampton office, Latimer House. Every two months the work of a new artist will be exhibited in the office.

The exhibitions are provided by Little Van Gogh, an Arts community which brings business and artists together. Little Van Gogh was founded 17 years ago in Belgium and now exhibits 7,000 pieces of art throughout the continent, changing them every month or two.
 
The new changing exhibitions at Jones Lang LaSalle will promote professional artists and offer them a forum in which to sell their work. This means that visitors to their office and employees will have constant access to new and original artwork with and the ability to purchase if they wish.
 
Michael Green, Lead director at Jones Lang LaSalle said: “The impact on the office environment is exciting and positive. The changing nature of the exhibitions will inject dynamism into the space keeping it fresh and engaging.
 
Employees at Jones Lang LaSalle are looking forward to the new level of energy the changing exhibitions will bring to their environment. The art will also create an exciting talking point, encouraging people to share ideas and exchange their opinions as well as taking an interest in the Arts”.
 
Jones Lang LaSalle is proud to be supporting abstract painter Philip Ingledew, the first artist to be exhibited at Latimer House. Inspired by the sea, Philip works in gloss using huge brushes to comb the paint across the canvas.
 
Though colour-blind, he uses vivid colours and by dragging the paint in horizontal lines, he presents his unique interpretation of moving and shimmering water in his work.
 
Future exhibitions will include a range of styles, from abstracts to landscapes. Everybody’s’ preference in art is different and as the exhibitions change, there should be something to suit everyone’s tastes.
 
Chloe Adams, director of Little Van Gogh said: ‘We are delighted to be showcasing our artists with Jones Lang LaSalle. Jones Lang LaSalle are enthusiastic about the exhibitions and have embraced the concept wholeheartedly.’
