If you wonder how pieces of a collection come to be, how inspiration and design form a new spark that ignites a passion, it isn’t as hard to find as you might think. Recently I talked about how functional items you use every day are the perfect receptacle for modern art. What a joy it is to use the items you have in your collection. Here is my story of how I came to find the most useful and practical item in my collection – a modern art digital piano( I found it here, on Digital Piano Judge).
Always on the search for new and inspired modern art I strolled down the streets of a new town only to find an intriguing artist and new gallery. Within I discovered glorious painting and mix media coating the likeness of a hundred or more musical instruments. What a delight to discover! I immediately knew that I much add a selection of his works to my collection. Browsing through I saw wonderful new century modern work mixing seamlessly with the quality instruments they were gracing.
After talking with the artist I discovered, much to my amazement that even though nearly every inch of the instruments were covered with art the instrument would still play. What a fascinating piece of practical art. At that moment I was sold. I selected a violin, a piano, and a vintage harmonica. While the violin and harmonica were easily considered lesser works their composition and theme fit nicely with a current collection of mine. The piano was truly a masterpiece.
It was several weeks before my delivery arrived but when it did I began to think. How often do we demand that art fit a specific bill or section? Such a wonderful thing modern art is. Fit to challenge the aspect of life and death and to move us to consider new works and designs. In Ancient times art and handiwork dotted the home from their tables to their walls and floors. The villas we unearth, we find that nearly every inch was surrounded by beauty. What a shame we live in a world where such life would be considered distasteful.
So here we come to the meat of the piece. How to add practical modern art into your life. Pianos are a great example. If you love to collect art, a love of music isn’t long behind. Combining the two saves you time and money finding two pieces to place in your home. While you’re out looking from your new piano take a stroll down the path of the lesser walked and look for artists and designs that in incorporate modern art into this worthy investment in your life.
“But I don’t have a lesser known artist hosting an instrument gallery in my surrounding town” you’ll say. And I’ll agree. A quality and wonderfully functioning digital piano purchase will be the perfect start to adding a modern art piano to your display. After selecting the best piano you can afford (and digital will be ideal for transformation, due to its long life, quality sound, and solid exterior.) Contract with a local favorite artist to transform your new purchase into a piece of stunning modern art. The best piece will be the one you work closely with the artist to create. Making a masterpiece yourself, that will be the center of your new collection.
I love my new piano, I adore the light and color it brings into my collection, and I definitely love the attention I get – and the offers made – from the guests I host in my home.
A stunning piece of art deserves a great and central place in my home, and a central place it has!
