Tip for Choosing Art: Using Line and Shape

Springtime in the Peak DistrictLike color, the lines and shapes in a work of art convey strong emotional cues to a viewer.

When you’re selecting artwork for a particular room, pay special attention to the mood you want to create within the space. Choose art that supports those feelings.

For example, if you want to add energy to a space, consider artwork using a vertical (or ‘portrait’) orientation and diagonal lines. Angles within a picture carry lots of visual energy and can strongly direct the viewer’s eye.

You can even position lines within artwork so people will look at other elements within your interior design scheme, like furniture and drapery.

On the other hand, if you want the art to have a peaceful, calming effect, avoid angular jagged lines. Instead go for visuals with more rounded, smooth and flowing graphics. A horizontal (‘landscape’) orientation can also emphasize calmness and stability.

When you’re looking at art, pay attention to the way an image makes you feel. Then evaluate the graphics in the picture. In no time, you’ll be able to quickly identify the best pictures for specific moods.

New Representation: Graphic Encounter

Nat Coalson Art at Graphic EncounterIt’s not often that I allow outside entities to represent my work; this is a change. Recently, after several discussions with Ron Golbus and his team at Graphic Encounter, I’ve decided to partner with them to represent my photography and mixed media work for select projects.

Since 1970, Graphic Encounter has provided artworks for hotels, hospitality, healthcare, corporate offices and many other commercial projects, and I am thrilled that they are now representing my abstract photography, abstract mixed media and travel photography works. Graphic Encounter represents a very wide range of art styles, genres and installation types, check out their web site.
