Granted the country posters at FulcrumGallery.com are a bit idyllic and focus on the beautiful aspects of living away from cities, they have certain aesthetic value. These images are soothing and inspiring, not to mention that they have the uncanny ability of helping people daydream when admiring them. It is hard to imagine a quiet afternoon, in the middle of nature, listening to birds singing rather than being stuck in traffic and surrounded by concrete, steel and glass. This is exactly the effect that country art has on people so if you are overwhelmed by the stress of modern living, don’t hesitate to hang such artwork on the walls.
Modern representations of country art stand out from the crowd through simplicity, with a couple of strokes being more than enough to paint an idyllic picture. What makes them special is the sheer contrast with the dynamic nature of urban living and they project an image of serenity and blissful nights. By comparison, the country paintings created by Claude Monet more than one century ago are meticulously constructed and impress with their bright colors and joyfulness.
