It’s all about symmetry with this industrial metal wall painting that makes this room stand out from the crowd. If this painting were hanging on the wall alone you might just walk by it and not take notice. You wouldn’t see a vintage race car built by a group of proud men painted on an oversized canvas made from salvaged metal. But put symmetry to work and the entire wall becomes a focal point for the room.
Industrial Metal Wall Painting
Symmetry is defined as the quality being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis. Or in simpler terms, an object has reflectional symmetry if there is a line going through it which divides it into two pieces which are mirror images of each other. In this case, the line would go directly through the middle of this vintage painting. Symmetry is created on this wall with the placement of like items on each side of the painting. First the wall is grounded with an almost equally large console beneath the painting. Take note that scale is important with this space given the large size of the painting. Next, the console is flanked with two matching lamps, again over sized light fixtures, with a large woven basket placed in the center. Lastly, two substantially large mirrors are hung on each side that add not only symmetry but the perception of depth to the space. Each piece alone might not get your attention but grouped together make this wall a ‘fait de complet.’ Au revoir!
