The work of Joan Miro has been referred to as having childlike organic forms, though not exactly childlike in form his images none the less have a huge amount of appeal thanks to their organic yet flat and solid nature. Because of their colorful and solid composition such works of art can make good decoration for your nursery, and would defiantly make such a room unique among those of children. Such paintings as his however need a frame unless your walls are a neutral color as one of their primary compositional powers comes from the internal color scheme and so can be detracted from by external colors.
For many the idea of using such surreal art as wall art for kids seems strange however pictures do not necessary need to add a story to add interest. The Painting “Daybreak Tagesanbruch” is a strongly composed picture of green, red, yellow, and blue who’s flat simplicity makes it both easy to examine and fascinating as a design element. Like a little creature standing between the worlds of dawn and night as the sun on rising this painting has a strange energy that could fit very will in any child’s room.
The “Melancholic Singer” like the painting “Daybreak Tagesanbruch” is a multicolored series of shapes, however it has a larger area that could be considered a sort of odd negative space in which the paint of the picture can dance like a wild flock of birds. One of Miro’s more interesting paintings “The Melancholic Singer” typifies the type of imagery normally associated with the painter, a strong work of art its power lays in the its unique way of moving across the page, a form of movement that would add energy to any nursery décor.
“Lune Verte” like the “Melancholic Singer” dances across the page as a series of broken images coming to overwhelm the negative space that is so much larger then they are with pure energy. However in this picture the solid flat images normally associated with Miro’s work have help from what is perhaps one of the few times he truly did what a small child would do. This painting is dominated by yellow scribbles that circles over his many flat organic forms. The sheer energy of this painting helps the viewers to see how much fun Miro had painting it, like any child has just placing color on a canvas, yet unlike most children one can see how firmly Miro plans or at least understands the composition of his paintings and how such things move the viewers eyes around the canvas. It is this skill that makes Miro a great painter, the ability to.
It’s interesting to note that although Miro’s most powerful compositions do seem to be the broken dances across negative space, this is not necessarily his most common form of painting composition. His painting “Compositions” though in color and style choice is much like the two previously mentioned paintings it is much more solid, as it dominates the negative space with its solid form. However it is still a very good choice in décor because its composition though not as energetic is still beautiful and can rest within the room as a design element. It is such abilities of design to hold a room together that make Miro a good choice to grace any room.
