Breaking with Tradition

I have always been drawn to asymmetry. There is something very intelligent about being able to make asymmetric patterns work, whether it be in art, fashion, architecture, or design. 

Balance is always a factor, there must be precision in its execution or the irregular outline will look haphazard and mistakenly thrown together.

The wall at Osteria Savio Volpe in Vancouver inspires me to break away with the traditional hanging of art. I appreciate the off centre lighting, the scale of large panels to small portraiture, hung directly over the leading line sitting regally above its patrons.

The eye wanders in observation, why not let it contemplate in curiosity. -tM
