It’s not often that two seemingly different worlds come together to form a mutually beneficial partnership, however that’s exactly what’s happened with the Guildford office of leading accountancy firm PKF and local up-and-coming artist Joanna Weston.
Joanna runs Jobox Photography near Guildford in Surrey where she creates limited edition abstract canvas art. Using tightly framed shots, her work features everyday objects captured in an abstract form to awaken the viewer’s curiosity as to what lies beneath. PKF accountants and business advisers is supporting Joanna with a three month exhibition of several handpicked pieces of her work in the reception and meeting room areas of its Guildford offices in Park Street.
Jeff Jeffries, partner at PKF, says: “Jobox Photography wall art is creative, thought provoking and captivating and a welcome addition to our Guildford offices. As one of the town’s leading businesses, we are always keen to support the local community and rising talent such as Joanna Weston.”
Joanna Weston, owner of Jobox Photography, says: “I am delighted PKF has chosen to exhibit my work and thank them for their support. When I create, it is always very satisfying but as an artist it is also important to me that other people love my work just as much as I do and are able to enjoy it through exhibitions such as this.”
It’s great to see the corporate world supporting the art world in this way and in turn art bringing some colour and creativity to business. Monty Python once labelled accountants as dull, dull, dull…I beg to differ!
