Left: “Exodus”, Mixed Media on Canvas, 48 x 48 in. Right: “Melange”, Mixed media on Wood, 60 x 50 in.
You can create a unified focal point while still adding variety to your collection by utilizing two pieces in close proximity that have a similar palette, but differ in both style and medium.
Clockwise from Top Left: “Dream Concept”, Mixed Media on Canvas, 28 x 22.1 in., “Berries and a Plate” & “Apples, Plums, and a Bowl”, Oil on Board, 4.75 x 6 in. each, “Soul XXX”, Mixed Media on Board, 12 x 10 in., “State of Mind II”, Acrylic on Canvas, 24 x 20 in., “Still Life VIII”, Oil on Metal, 8 x 10 in.
Pairing realistic still lifes with a series of abstracts provides enough similarity in organic forms, however, are vastly different in style thus creating a bold statement in an otherwise neutral space.
“Obtineo”, Acrylic on Canvas, 70.25 x 78 in.
Blending a lively abstract within a classically designed interior can bring a touch of modernity to the room.
Mix it up in your home! Try pairing abstract paintings with traditional landscapes, a still life on canvas with a contemporary mixed media on wood, a modern piece in a classic room (and vice versa.)
Build your own unique collection and remember that consistency is not always key.
