Tranquil Black and White - Art

Tranquil, calming and serene black and white works by photographic artist Leland D Howard. For a restful yet sophisticated atmosphere in any home or office environment. An astounding amount of corporate money is spent creating structures in which people conduct business and pursue community goals. Human beings are expected to be creative, to work and to generally function at their best in the interior environments of these buildings. And yet, disturbingly often, so little attention is paid to maintaining a healthy, stimulating and inspirational interior space that buildings act against their original purpose and begin to dampen the human spirit.  The simple, yet often overlooked reality, is that art and architecture have measurable effects. Any industry that relies on the productivity of human beings will benefit greatly if attention is paid to this basic principle. Investments in wisely chosen artwork alone result in a more productive, healthy, competitive and spirited group of individuals. There may even be fewer sick days, and people tend to get along with each other better when surrounded by expressive and moving works of art. A large business might spend millions on structures to house a work force and then cover the walls with cheap or faded poster images under the guise of cost savings. This is standard practice even in hospitals, where art could be of enormous benefit. It makes no sense, even in financial terms. Some corporations have realized how important the arts are when designing an interior environment, but their focus on art is often confined to larger population centers and resorts. There is no valid reason for this discrimination. Organizations can reap the benefits of well-chosen art regardless of population size, regional culture or business model.  Art is not something we live with—it's something we can't live without.  --Leland Howard
