Collecting Small Art. An Art In Itself.

SMALL ART DOES NOT MEAN SMALL IMPACT


A small flower nestled amongst the larger rocks and shrubs may possibly be the prettiest example of beauty in the entire garden. Small works of art are like that small flower, surprising us and awakening our interest, creating impact in new and unexpected locations.


When placed in a well-chosen location, small art enhances any space, be it the living, dining, or bedrooms, or perhaps in less obvious places – a closet, a powder room, a kitchen corner or reading nook. At the same time, small works retain the same high degree of creativity and craftsmanship as artwork in bigger dimensions.

SMALL ART SPARKS ENERGY


A small piece of pottery, sculpture or painting, encourages us to focus on elements of compositions, providing a meditative-like experience just for its simplicity. A series of otherwise unrelated artwork placed together, whether on a wall or a table, creates an interrelationship, called “varyism.” In a sense, this concept of assembling two or more elements together results in “more than the sum of their parts.” Multiple works hung in a group also allow you more creative control over the final presentation. The simple act of choosing how you arrange a group of small pieces together effectively creates new artwork. Displaying art this way creates new energy that all can enjoy.

SMALL ART CAN TELL A STORY


There are many reasons for collecting artwork in small sizes. Smaller pieces take up less space, they represent personal stories of sentimental value, and expresses a uniqueness that can’t be duplicated. Although we may think that we have no more room for art, the opportunity to portray personal stories or favorite styles using small art enriches our lives and maximizes our space.

SMALL ART AS GIFTS


There are many reasons to give art as a gift. Perhaps to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, or to simply say, “Thank you.” Equally important, art can say, “I care,” in times of stress or bereavement. For those who seem to have it all, small art can provide the perfect gift solution.
