Questions you need to ask yourselves before Hanging Figurative Paintings
The title surely would have given relief to the tornado inside your head and you don’t need to worry anymore as this blog post too will not disappoint you.
Obviously, you want to read this blog post either because you have been longing to buy figurative paintings or because you found a particular piece of figurative art so exquisite that without even giving a second thought you just bought that painting. In both the cases, the reason is the same, you don’t know where to hang it?
Honestly, you don’t need to worry about the placing of figurative paintings anymore, even if they are nude and have pubes in it. This post will help in deciding the right place in your space for every figurative art painting.
What is the tone of the nude?
Recall the impression that you got when you looked at that painting. Is it too sexual to be placed in a living room? In brief, see what the mood of the nude is and the colors that are used. If the colors are very light and neutral, you should hang it on a dark colored wall. If it’s overtly sexual then bedroom would be the best to hang it.
Are the subjects of painting making love to each other?
The figurative paintings can be made in various styles like abstract, contemporary, or nude etc. However, you need to take special care about the placing of the painting if it’s depicting a love scene between couples. Moreover, where you will hang the painting relies on how intimate the lovemaking scene is. If the painting portrays the subjects kissing or holding each other, placing it anywhere in your house should not be a matter of disagreement or dislike.
Furthermore, if the painting shows the couple making love to each other while showing their reproductive organs then placing it in your bedroom will make more sense.
Will the members of your family like it?
It is quintessential to consider the family you live in. Is it a joint or a nuclear family? If it is a joint family, just give a thought while placing the painting anywhere. Ask yourselves, will the other family members be comfortable seeing it? Moreover, in Indian families, it might become more of a problem. Yes, the painting is an alluring work of art but you do need to take others opinion into consideration as well.
However, if you have a nuclear family, you can place it anywhere you think is appropriate for it to be placed.
Are there pubes?
If the answer is yes then, first of all, make it a point to never ever hang it in your dining room. Why? Well! Won’t it make you feel like puking if you will see pubic hair while eating?
Certainly yes. Hence, no matter how much you love your newly owned original figurative paintings, they are not meant for your dining room.
How will your children react?
This depends on the kind of atmosphere children have been raised in. What their age is? Whether they have sex education or not?
If the children are really young, they will probably giggle and make fun of it or be inquisitive about it. If they are teenagers, they probably are well aware of what it is and are sensitized enough to understand the beauty of such paintings.
Do you want to have a gallery wall in your space?
If you really love a painting and want to include in the living room but are skeptical of how people or your family members will react to it then do this trick. You can set a gallery wall by putting an amalgam of different paintings figurative or non-figurative. Thereafter, you just need to put your nude or sexual, love making art piece cunningly, somewhere on the wall in between the other paintings.
The aforementioned questions are vital for figuring out the ideal place for hanging the figurative paintings you own. However, if the painting is nude, placing it in the bedroom would be the best and most appropriate choice. Moreover, one should never hang a nude painting on the wall just behind the chair or sitting space. It will appear above someone’s head, if placed this way and will look awkward and funny.
Nevertheless, after answering all of these questions you will easily be able to figure out the best placing for your figurative art painting. So don’t restrain yourself from buying a figurative painting of your choice.
