Affordable Art Fair 2015
Here at the Affordable Art Fair, we tend to compare buying art to falling in love. You see something you like, you can’t stop thinking it, suddenly you can’t imagine life without it and next thing you know wedding bells are a-ringing.
Which is fantastic, and something we couldn’t encourage more! But what happens after you’ve set up home together? It can be difficult to find the perfect spot for your beloved new artwork, so we thought we’d seek some expert advice from one of our galleries. Here, Art Angler’s Jason Dick explains how to place artwork within your home to maximum effect.
How can art transform and enhance a room?
Art can transform a room in a variety of ways, but it all starts with what style you connect with. At Art Angler our first step is to discover the artists our clients like. Once we’ve narrowed it down, the next step is to determine the scale and orientation of the work the client is looking for. Often times, if we don’t have an exact size and shape available, we can present multiple pieces in a variety of layouts (for example diptychs, triptychs or stacked) to fit a particular space as needed.
A really vibrant and colourful palette, in a fun fresh style, such as the work of Xavi Carbonell, can bring a new level of energy to a space. Whilst a piece by Gloria Saez relays a strong sense of serenity and offers that feeling of “escaping” back to the quietness of nature, which a lot of people look for in art. They want a peaceful space to come home to after a long day of work....
