How To Hang Your Scales Wall Art

The Art of Displaying Scales: A Journey in Your Home

Welcome to a world where each piece of art is not just an object, but a portal to a story, a piece of a grand narrative. As you prepare to display your Scales, the exquisite fragments of Anna Judd's masterful oil paintings, let us guide you on how to transform your space into a living gallery, where each Scale is a chapter in your personal artistic journey.

1. Choosing the Ideal Space: Where Stories Unfold

Imagine each Scale as a character in your home's story. Find the perfect stage – a place where it can speak, resonate, and connect.

When selecting a spot for a single Scale, let it breathe and dominate, filling 50-75% of the wall space. For the ideal viewing experience, hang it so that its heart is 57 inches from the floor, aligning with your gaze.

2. Weaving Together Multiple Scales: Crafting a Tapestry of Tales

The true magic of Scales lies in their ability to connect – not just with each other but with every viewer. Whether it's a pair (a diptych) whispering a secret story, a trio (a triptych) singing a harmonious tale, an entire row or column, or an entire wall (a polyptych) transformed into a grand epic, each arrangement is your personal narrative, a reflection of your journey, your dreams.

  • For diptychs and triptychs, envision a dialogue between the pieces. Hang them with a gentle space of 2-4 inches, allowing each to converse yet maintain its identity.
  • In a 2x2 quad formation, think of harmony and balance. These should form a perfect square, with each Scale equidistant, creating a serene, balanced visual.
  • For full-wall installations, you’re painting a mural of stories. Start from the center, ensuring each Scale aligns flawlessly, turning your wall into an epic canvas of interconnected narratives.

3. The Ritual of Hanging: Precision Meets Passion

Each Scale you hang is an act of creation, a moment where you, too, become an artist. The precision in their alignment, the careful balance of space and story, turns your wall into a gallery, each piece a chapter in an unfolding saga.

  • Single Scales require standard hanging hardware, a simple yet essential tool in showcasing your art. If hanging above furniture, leave a thoughtful space of 6-12 inches to create a visual dialogue between art and object.
  • For multiple Scales, precision is your compass. Measure with care, use a level for alignment, and consider the narrative flow of your arrangement.

4. Curating Your Gallery Wall: An Artistic Symphony

Here, let your creativity soar. Assemble a complete painting, or curate a mix of Scales, creating your own gallery wall. Whether in rows, columns, or a staggered pattern, each Scale adds a note to your symphony. There are no rules, only your vision and the stories you wish to tell.

5. The Aesthetic Essence: Perfecting Your Display

  • Keep a consistent spacing of 2-5 inches for a cohesive look.
  • Group Scales by themes or color schemes for a harmonious gallery wall.
  • Lay out placements on the floor for experimentation.
  • Use a level for perfect alignment, especially in larger installations.

Embark on Your Artistic Journey with Scales

Now, you stand at the threshold of transformation. Armed with these tips and imbued with inspiration, you are now ready to bring the narrative of Scales into your world. Each piece is a chapter, each arrangement a story, waiting to be told through your unique perspective. Let your walls become a living gallery, a testament to your journey with art and emotion. Begin your journey with Scales, become a curator of your own gallery, and let every piece you hang be a reflection of your personal artistic odyssey.
