Divine Living

When it is finally time to invest in something special, whether it’s an old sports car, a little black dress, or a holiday vacation, you want it to be classic, timeless, and above all, something authentic that you can cherish for years to come. The same is true of contemporary art. There is nothing wrong with investing in whimsical and new artistic creations, but when you want to find the one piece you can feature for years to come, you are looking for simplicity, elegance, and technique. Technology and replication have made it harder than ever to find the real deal in a sea of replicas and remakes, and this has caused a deep hunger for the authentic, ethereal, and mystical. People are looking for unique experiences with emotional connections, instead of accepting the cold hand of technology becoming so engrained in society today. This is the concept behind Divine Living. It is about being authentic, peaceful, and beautiful. It is about things that last through the changing of trends and seasons. If you are looking for truly timeless artwork, the Mahlstedt Gallery offers fine art originals and limited edition prints that will add a cherished beauty to your home.

If you are seeking a new take on a timeless subject, ethereal artworks by Philip McKay portray surreal landscapes captured using fine art photography. His photos, often black and white or monochromatic, fit well in many settings because of their neutral colors. Despite the plain colors, his works have a heavenly essence about them that set them apart from other surreal photographs, they even appear to emanate their own light from within their cloudy depths.

On the less surreal and abstract side of classically beautiful artistic creations, still life paintings by David Bush provide a peaceful essence to interior design. Rich, natural color palettes with simple white backgrounds make these unique subjects stand out in a subtle way. These works are elaborate enough to create lasting interest, but are effortless in their simplicity.
