DUETS: Art in Dialogue

Exploring how to curate art in pairs.

At McCully & Crane we love combining paintings and objects in unexpected ways and we often look for the hidden links or playful contrasts when combining pieces together.

A colour palette, subtle echos of shape or pattern, or even the use of material can tie two very different artworks together. We believe the key of a successful pairing is to be bold and go with your gut feeling.
