Living with Art: Statement Abstract Expressionist Interiors
Bring the spirit of abstract expressionism into your home with Abbot & Boyd’s Rothko-influenced wall covering ‘Time Will Tell’ from their Élitis range.
The iconic mid-twentieth Century American movement that plunged New York into the centre of the art world was famous for bold colours and a vibrant energy that made for a dynamic interaction between painting and viewer.
Taking inspiration from the striking aesthetic of Abstract Expressionism, Abbot and Boyd’s ‘Time Will Tell’ Wall covering provides a high contrast between bold shades of primary colours, underpinned by a rich yet bright green to give a feeling of completeness in colour. Sporadic black lines add structure and order to the print, resulting in a distinguished piece perfect for any feature wall.
A stylish canvas effect is produced with a textured print that creates the optical illusion of brushstrokes, compounded by an embossed silk finish mimicking the unmistakable texture of oil paint on fabric. Designed to cover a range of around three metres cubed, the panoramic print also conjures the physical magnitude of a classic painting, providing a breathtaking statement in whichever room you choose to feature it.
Famous for displaying his works in low-lighting, Rothko chose colours which glowed with their own inherent luminosity.
