Sideways?


a 90 degree turn to the right
I had a comment from anonymous, my biggest fan, and it was suggested that he/she would turn the painting on its side:
"If I owned the painting I would hang it on it's side with the purple area at the bottom. It feels more secure that way...not so much a feeling of falling rocks and hidden places."
I always say that if you own the art, you can hang it anyway you like, and for that matter you can also call it anything you like. Georgia O'Keefe had a painting (unbeknownst to her) hanging upside down in a museum for years. It was only recently discovered to be hanging incorrectly.
I have also had a particular quilt published twice in the upside down position. I know this was my fault, forgetting the arrow on the slide as I should have done. However, two different publications with it in that position made me question if I was correct to show it that way. Who knows?
The lesson here is that art is like our children and at some point we must let them go and become who they were meant to be.

In this same vein, I wasn't thrilled with this painting when it was hanging downstairs against a white wall, but when I put it in the red living room, it seemed completely at home. Since gallery walls are almost always white, I felt it was the right place to view it...and consequently rejected it. Now that it is here, where we see it everyday, it has become ours.

  1. Nah, I think it's got more oomph longways. You know what it makes me think of - an aerial shot of a rugged alien landscape with the remnants of an ancient civilisation in the middle. !!

    I think the positioning of your art is a reflection of the statement you were trying to make. It definitely has two different meanings to me resulting from the position. To each his own, I guess.

    I like it better the way you originally had it, vertically. When it's on it's side, it looks like a funky version of Nebraska. How do you spell Rorschach?

  5. Art isn't only like our children, but like our children - we need to take our cues from the artist. Maybe the artist can look at it and say "Wow! I does look better upside down" Or "No, it's not an elephant, it's a daisy!"
    Cheers, Denise

  6. Now that I am home I see Adobe. I love it there! Yes, that is a very good place for it.

  7. Interestingly, it becomes something else on it's side. Standing up, I visualized it as a being, person, elephant, something living. Lying down, I visualize it as a landscape of rocks, rivers and meadows. Sorry, I have a concrete mind and don't do abstract well. =)

  8. I prefer it the way it was too... strange how just turning things round makes such a difference!
