The presence of artwork within the home can bring order to a room. It can not only unify all the creative elements within that room but give our belongings fluidity and place.
The placement and choice of our collective pieces, whether they be painting or sculpture, photography or artefacts, can adjust our state of mind and enhance our level of tranquillity.
Our selection of art is for both the outside observer ie our guests – to offer enlightenment into our unique minds and experiences, yet also very much for ourselves – to conjure emotions and restore memories.
Art provokes reflection and opinion; it becomes a wordless translation; a gift of understanding to those that appreciate it, therefore each piece of work should be displayed as such.
No two pieces of hand-created works are the same and no two responses to that creation will, likewise, correlate. Art reflects the Self; our internal reactions derive from our unique experiences, thus the importance of surrounding ourselves with the perfect pieces in our optimal setting is imperative to invoke harmony and well-being. Mis-placed, or even spaced, pieces can quickly lose their charm and emit a feeling of chaos into our surroundings.
Colour, medium, texture, subject, material, form and purpose all differ from piece to piece leaving our options endless and our freedom for diversity and individuality to thrive.
To complement our furniture and other personal belongings, our works of art need to be positioned with precision in our rooms. To enhance the creativity of each piece, lighting is of the upmost importance.
The correct piece of work in any given space can tie all other elements of that room together, drawing on, fundamentally, depth, pigment, textures and outlines. Choosing the right painting can complete the look and feel of any given area.
For example, in a room displaying the most eclectic of tastes, choosing a painting that draws on that variety of design can give it all purpose and reason.
Likewise, within a naturalistic space promoting minimalism, an interjection of vibrancy, in colour and shape, can lift the atmosphere that surrounds it and, subsequently, adjust the emotion of anyone that walks into that space.
It is the conjured response to the artwork that is the artwork itself.
