Art at New Wave Coffee
|Funderburk, Quadrant Logos, 2011|
These pieces are 4’x4’, and I got a diptych from Jeff comprised of two 4’x4’ panels to hang directly across from them (pic at bottom); then I brought in several older works that are also 4’ tall (directly below) to create a strong lateral movement through the space. Besides great hanging scenarios for individual pieces, I think the continuity helps interests migrate from one piece to the next — not unlike comics panels — and correlations are easier to form. And whether guests are giving direct attention to what’s on the walls or not, I think the overall effect is a calm, holistic peripheral environment.
The yellow one on the left below is a precedent for the composite logos, something I did as part of a series in 2006 — below is the source (a poster I made for the Ranch Theater Co.) and compositional studies. Others in the series stuck strictly to the red/blue/brown color palette of the source material, but this yellow one was a pleasant departure.
