In our blog series, “Picture This,” we employ the magic of Photoshop to showcase our artists’ latest creations in settings as stunning as your own home.

In this edition of the series, we provide suggestions on how to infuse your dining room with character through curated art installations. Whether you’re on the hunt for inspiration or hope to invigorate the ambiance of your dining space, please allow us introduce you to a selection of fresh Gallery MAR artworks that beautifully complement exceptional dining spaces. After all, what better pairing than fine art and fine dining?



Matt Flint, “Looking Back, Looking Past,” mixed media, 48″ x 72″

The blend of painterly expression, layered textures, and classic wildlife imagery within Matt Flint’s work, makes it an elegant fit for any space, from contemporary to traditional. While the same is true for this magnanimous piece “Looking Back, Looking Past,” we feel this piece is especially fitting for as elegant a space as this dining room. This piece beautifully ties together the range of styles in this space, from the mid century furniture to the modern accents to the more traditional wall molding. Plus, the soft and subtle color palette brings warmth and vibrancy to the room without competing with any color schemes. If you’re as in love with this piece as we are, we recommend acting quickly as the works from this new Matt Flint exhibition “Pentimento” are already selling fast!



Pamela Murphy, “Redrock Cowgirl,” oil, 31.5″ x 31.5″

Pamela Murphy has a knack for creating sweetly nostalgic, sophisticatedly sentimental works. This new piece “Redrock Cowgirl“ is the epitome of that energy. The darling subject matter, textured canvas, and strong composition, makes it an elegant centerpiece for your dining space. Plus, the quiet, subdued color palette add a touch of warmth and color to match neutral spaces or to quiet louder ones



Kenneth Peloke, “Whispers,” oil, 48″ x 72″

The high contrast, hyperrealistic paintings of Kenneth Peloke are certain to make a bold statement wherever they’re placed. This larger than life piece, “Whispers,” is the perfect contemporary complement to your dining space, or to wherever you need a dynamic focal point. The scale of this work alone is enough to elicit awe, but upon closer inspection, the impressive detailing will be sure to capture and mesmerize any guest to your home.



Michael Kessler, “Backwater (1),” acrylic, 36″ x 48″

Big and bold, the work of Michael Kessler always finds the perfect balance between making a bold statement and creating aesthetically pleasing harmony with a space. This work “Backwater (1),” contains a touch of amber-colored warmth on the border that contrasts beautifully with the cooler, blue-gray tones at its center, while the black and ivory marks and textures will keep the eye mesmerized and the heart enchanted. This work is particularly apt for your more modern spaces like in this minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired dining room.



KOLLABS, “Titus,” mixed media, 30″ x 24″

The artist duo KOLLABS knows how to blend nature with culture in a beautifully refined way in their work. This work “Titus” blends the simultaneous power and delicacy of the natural world with the vintage sophistication of the man-made realm. The textures and neutral colors of this work will harmonize with any space. We particularly love it in this moody and modern space where the beautiful juxtapositions within KOLLABS’ work are truly on display.



Samantha Da Silva, “Alpine Serenity,” mixed media, 24″ x 48″

To add energy, interest, and depth to your more simple, minimalist spaces, we recommend the highly textured work of Samantha Da Silva. This particular piece brings a touch of color and a metallic shimmer to your home without contrasting too loudly with more tranquil settings. All at once energetic and peaceful, this work makes the perfect backdrop for any fine dining setting.
