Having images around me that reflect my interests, memories, and ideas is very important to my creative process and well-being. With the semester coming to a close and my schedule slowly opening up a bit, I'm dedicating little pockets of time to getting my space in order, and that includes finally getting artwork up on the walls — especially in my studio/office space.
Over the weekend I framed some of the many things I've been excited about hanging. Like a Grace Jones album cover, some labels I found at a fleamarket in Spain, a vintage map of Africa, and a collage illustration by Peggy Wolf I found in Tokion's Factory Magazine. (I love her work and love that collage and had been wanting to frame it for a while.)
There is still so much to hang, mainly more prints. In the future I would like to use more family photos and original prints or paintings. I'm totally excited about building my collection.
What is your art collection like? How do you display art? What do you display? If you're an artist do you hang your own work in your home? Share!
