While there is no question that I am far more well known for my colorful artwork, there’s something about the simplicity of black and white art that speaks to me. And I know that I can’t be alone because black and white art is so often a popular choice to decorate with.
Is it because black and white art is by its nature neutral such that it goes well with so many different styles of home decor? Or is it that people love the feel of monochrome art? I’m honestly not sure. I know for my part there’s something about stripping away color. It reveals the lines of an object the way an illustration might. Instead of concentrating on the color of things it brings my eyes to the physical aspect of the subject of the art. I fine that black and white art is especially suited to architecture precisely because it accents the architectural details.
