Putting Art Together: A Loft Above

Too many windows to hang art? Try sculpture!

Colin from Griffith Interior Design loves art. While working on the LODO bachelor pad above, he brought a client into the art gallery to see how we could put the finishing touches on his loft. The large-scale artwork the client was drawn to complimented the  masculine design aesthetic Colin had created.

But the entire west wall of the loft was windows, a common art challenge in Colorado—where do I hang the art? We recommended a Jonathan Hils sculpture that would create shadow play from the natural light. Munson Hunt’s large-scale organic wood wall reliefs were placed across the room to add an organic component to the otherwise industrial space. Sculpture is a playful way to anchor a big, open space and provide unexpected sophistication to a collection.

Check out the art pieces selected for the bachelor pad:


Munson Hunt: “Bark Pair”
charred and graphite dusted cottonwood wall reliefs, 62" x 17" x 4" each

 


Ben Strawn: “Thin Place”
acrylic on canvas, 76”x66”

 


Jason Lucas: “Redemption 5”
mixed media on panel, 56”x42”

 


Jonathan Hils: “Amalgamation”
wood and steel, 87”x60”x20”

 


Robert Buelteman: "Golden Columbine”
chromogenic development print, 47.5”x57.5”

Bobbi Walker has been actively involved in the arts community in Denver, as the founder of Walker Fine Art, a loft-style gallery featuring original contemporary art, since 1999.
