Hanging to scale

To provide an idea of the size of the images as they will be displayed on the walls of my first venue, I have created the to scale images below.

The wall measures 6 metres width by 2.5 metres in height.

Although I can arrange the room as I wish, I am also conscious that the room is an adaptable space with a cafe. This means there is potential for damage to my artwork if, for example, young children are left unattended and place sticky hands on the work.

For reasons such as this, I will probably plump for a display that is above the midway point, such as Figures 5 to 7.

PDFs of the layouts can be accessed at the end of this post. Some have been reduced by approx. 20% of the original size.

Figure 7 above has been created with a ‘peach’ background to provide an idea of how the work may look if the venue is unable to paint the wall white before the show begins.

An example of the venue wall colour is shown below in Figure 8.

Some of my images are also suitable to either portrait or landscape viewing.

I am currently drawn to the layout shown in Figures 6 and 7. The portrait images anchor the central image, which is different in colour to the others, while the two exterior landscapes images hold the display in place.

Each A1 print is complimented by an A5 scan of its original unfixed black and white lumen image.
