A client recently visited my home and made mention of the great impression that the art on my walls gives, I guess it may come as a surprise that most of it is inexpensive or DIY. It's ever changing and evolving, here's a little right-now tour...
Canning Stock Route exhibition of glorious Aboriginal art. Above Right: The much cyber-acclaimed "Love It" painting, my own, inspired by a Kikki K gift card! Also on the wall, a curtain wire system from Ikea which I arranged into an 'S' shape for the kids art and a few bits.
Above: "One Bad Apple" can you spot the solo apple swinging it's own way? I created this large piece by individually cutting out 120 apple shapes (traced from an MDF shape from Bunnings) from a selection of materials which include printed and plain felts and scrapbooking papers and fabric offcuts. These were glued onto a BIG painted canvas, and (DIY framed with pine). the whole thing is about 1.2m across and makes quite a fun impact in our playroom.
Also in the family room, above left, is a cluster of random cuteness which includes some local artists, kids art, and gift cards by Schmooks. This then flows along to the dining room, right, with a large fabric covered canvas which ties back the reds from the apples, the green in the chairs and the blue in the adjoining lounge room (below).
What does the art in your home say about you?
