There is some art that prospers in solitude.
It prefers a quiet moment alone, above a fireplace or imposingly placed beneath a light source all the better to signify its artful import.
It may be a work of such beauty that it is best viewed alone, where it can be savoured and appreciated without distraction.
Sometimes, it is simply the work of some dreadfully expensive artiste, whose owner feels compelled to draw an undivided attention to it...
And then there is art that benefits from community.
Often growing in beauty through contrast and juxtaposition.
Like people, art is often happiest in a collective where diversity and companionship make it all the more lovely!
These fine collections are a case in point. There is such harmony and balance in their artful display, that any other hanging would seem to impoverish them.
I have found that by first assembling a collection of art on the floor, and paying careful attention to colour, contrast and form, a display that is pleasing to the eye is more readily achieved.
