PAIRING YOUR PRINTS

One of the best feelings as an artist is pairing prints together to tell a story, Daryl does this throughout his work and the print store is no different. Pairing different works together helps build a better image in ones mind about the feeling of the images, the overarching ambiguity of some of the cleaner compositins allows for imagination. Pairing could be a diptych which consists of 2 works together, or a triptych with 3 complimentary or contrasting works. You could even have a multiple sequence of works or the whole collection in one space.

The new Northumberland Collection features 6 personal favourites which feature images from the coast, the National Trust site of the Farne Islands and further inland in one of the largest man made forest in Europe, Kielder Forest. With the delicate centre weighted compositions, a mix of pastels, oranges and earthy greens, the collection offers variation for any environment.

STEP 1

ASSESS YOUR SPACE

Carefully assess the final destination of the prints first. Perhaps your chosen room has dark walls or lots of sunlight at certain times of the day. Finding the right balance of colour and tones in the artworks you chose can help you creating a certain atmosphere in your space. Whatever decision you opt for, make sure to consider not only the colour palette of your chosen print, but also of the rest of your furniture, the walls and any potential were the prints might be in sunlight. Always try to avoid having your pints in direct sunlight to avoid damaging the print.

STEP 2

BUILDING THE PAIRS

Pairing your chosen artwork is firstly purely personal, but you could consider a few things which might help identify the chosen prints for your space.

In most instances your pairing should either contrast one another or be complimentary, you want to create a visual connection. This could also be said for contrasting against your space, such as a green earthy print, the Highland Cow, in an orange space or a pure white room.

Another way of selecting prints is to combine images from the same area, such as Bamburgh Castle or the Highland Cow, these two work perfect and juxtapose one another due to the opposing colours.

Ultimately you are the master of your own space and understand the vision for the room of your chosen artwork. If you need any inspiration, refer to the gallery on the Print Store page or below which has pairing examples.

Have fun and we can’t wait to see your chosen prints in your space!
