Christian Simonian "The Visitation"

Simonian emphasizes vibrant color and line in an abstract aesthetic based on interpretive associations, often of religious concepts.

Simonian emphasizes vibrant color and line in an abstract aesthetic based on interpretive associations, often of religious concepts. The featured piece, “The Visitation,” typifies his digital work. It is is shown here framed in a moulding from our solid wood Palladio collection. The black/brown finish pairs with similar tones in the painting and the substantial, detailed profile provides a visual weight matched to that of the complex, dynamic image.

The frame doesn’t dominate, however, thanks to the two mats: a nature-inspired medium green on top of a neutral reveal. Neither mat perfectly matches any one tone in the art, but they are in the same color family, so they complement rather than conflict.
