In her Vestiges series, photographer Amy Friend captures movement in a romantic light — transforming fabric into suspended abstract forms. Perfect for anyone who loves fashion. I can imagine this series in a white room – so lovely. You can find Amy’s work at Art Interiors.
The right piece of art can set the tone for a room or even your entire home. Nailing down the scale and tone is key. It should be something you love.
This acrylic on canvas painting by artist Anne Barkley creates a soothing, sophisticated feeling. Her mastery of colour comes through in all her work. Restful in a master bedroom, I could also see it in a livingroom or family room. Beautiful. This piece is available at the Wellington Street Art Gallery in Toronto. Anne is also represented by Leonardo Galleries. Check out more of her work here. You can read a post I wrote about Anne here.
Anne Barkley’s Window of Opportunity.
Artist Kim Atlin has some stunning paintings available at the Parts Gallery. Her use of soft blues and greens is inspiring.
This painting is entitled New Growth – so fresh and uplifting.
Kim Atlin’s oil on canvas, Wild Lattice.
I love Kim’s style. This piece is called Party Mix.
Montreal artist Isabelle Trudel-Benoit is a master colourist. Her Composition Couleur series is gorgeous. Isabelle’s work would warm up a contemporary space or update a traditional room. She’s represented by Canvas Gallery.
This piece would bring such depth and warmth to a room. The mix of colours is subtle — offering so many possibilities for creating a soulful home. I like the idea of pulling out the mustard shade for an occasional chair or accessories. It’s so beautiful paired with grey.
I’m also drawn to artist Ray Cattell’s Windsong. It’s one of those layered paintings you could look at for hours. Ray’s work is available at Moore Gallery.
With Bloom of Thunder, Ray Cattell creates a dreamy image that reminds me of floating lettuce leaves.
I tend to be moved by art with a softer feel, yet I’m immediately taken with this bold acrylic on canvas by Guido Molinari called Verticales Bleu Vert. It’s available at Moore Gallery. The colours are so striking together. I find this painting so energizing.
One of my favourite contemporary painters is Michael Adamson. You can read a post I wrote about him here. He’s represented by Moore Gallery in Toronto and Sopa Fine Arts in Kelowna BC in the Okanagan Valley. Here are a few pieces that caught my eye at Sopa.
This feel good piece is entitled Out to Sea.
Another striking oil on canvas from Michael Adamson – Pulse of the Fray.
I’ve written about artist/illustrator Alanna Cavanagh before. You can read that post here. She’s always working on new pieces and I love this print — An Empty Belly. You can buy it directly from her or through Telegramme prints. Wouldn’t it be perfect in a kitchen or dining room?
Have a great long weekend!
