Thought-provoking, stimulating and beautiful – her work is just waiting to be explored…
Make an impact with bright colours
Sophie Taeuber-Arp wasn’t afraid to use bold colours in her work. Create an eye-catching focal point for a room by choosing one of her vivid pieces, such as ‘Equilibre’, with its bright primary colours, or the striking ‘Composition of circles and semicircles’, with its colourful shapes against a strong black background.
If you prefer a slightly more muted colour scheme, then the warm gold and terracotta shades of ‘Squares’ are a beautiful choice that would look great hung above a cosy fireplace.
Keep it cool with monochrome
You’ll find some Sophie Taeuber-Arp paintings use a cooler colour palette of blacks, whites and greys to create versatile pieces that will work in rooms decorated in any colour! ‘Composition with circles and rectangles’ would look equally at home on a deep red wall as it would on a bright white one. And of course, with Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s love of rule-breaking, you’ll find funky works like ‘Plans profiles en courbes et plans’ with a surprise splash of bright colour amongst the monochrome!
Choose the right material for your print
You have a range of options when it come to choosing the material you want your image to be printed on. While photo paper gives you great quality and is easy to frame, it’s also worth considering other options.
Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s modern style looks amazing printed on slender Alu-Dibond for a colour-intensive finish, or durable acrylic glass for a glossy effect.
If your chosen picture has a lot of white, then choosing lightweight Forex foam board will help the subtle features to stand out. Canvas can also be a beautiful choice, giving you an authentic gallery feel. Or why not follow Sophie’s lead and choose an unusual material, such as wood, for your rebellious piece?
