Choosing artwork is often an emotional decision. Most collectors fall in love with a piece of art and say they will “find the right spot for it.” Size and color matters of course, but it’s the emotional reaction that usually carries the day. Once in a while a collector is surprised to be drawn to something they never would have considered before, and their reaction is exciting!
Do you play it safe — or have you ever stepped outside your comfort zone when choosing a piece of art?
We have many stories about first-time Hunt Slonem collectors whose first reaction is to say, “This is ridiculous!” After studying the bunnies and reading their gestures and personality, the connection is made and they must have one in their collection.
Want to wake up a tired and perhaps too-similar collection? Diversity in an art collection makes everything stand out. Don’t blend in too much, but consider a surprise or two in your choices and arrangement of a collection.
