Home Decor Art: The Versatility of Diptych Paintings

by Catherine Jeltes in Studio Bits
If you are anything like me, you are constantly on the lookout for ways to update your surroundings that not only reflects your personal sense of self and style, but also lends itself to a certain “whimsical versatility.”
When it comes to home decor, multi-panel art such as diptych paintings (two panels) and triptych paintings (three panels) can give you the most bang for your buck.  Modern abstract art is the most versatile, allowing for display in any orientation.
In this small diptych titled Blue Dragonfly, each panel is 8″ x 10″, giving a total surface area of 16″ x 10″ or 20″ x 8″–which can be increased quite a bit depending upon how the paintings are spaced when displayed.
In the above presentation, each panel is off-set, increasing the display space while providing visual interest.
If more coverage of length than height on the wall is desired, displaying one painting in landscape orientation and one in portrait orientation is a unique way to accomplish that.
Of course, if you have art paintings in a similar color scheme you can even combine them into a much larger canvas display.  
If original art does not fit your budget, the same concept can be applied to mass market canvas prints or grouping various size photo frames into a themed wall gallery display.  And when you are ready for another change, simply swap out photographs, reconfigure the grouping, add more art or take some away.  Easy peasy…and after the initial investment, easy on your wallet.
