I see so many incredible artworks flicker on and off my screen each day, and while I’m thankful for the exposure to such a wealth of creativity, it saddens me to know that I will never be in the presence of the actual piece. It’s easy to admire images online, but anyone who has flipped through the thick pages of an art book, admired the subtle reflective sheen on a crisp photographic print or walked around the curves and angles of a sculpture knows that there’s nothing like the real deal.
The ratio of physical to digital art consumption will never be balanced again I’m sure, but I want to do my small part toward enjoying art with all my senses. Luckily the prevalence of affordable prints and small artwork is making this goal much more attainable. Society 6 is a site I like to peruse often, not only for their stylish phone cases, but also for their art prints. They have some great new works available; the collection is diverse, but all pieces share a level of sophistication and mystery that I really like. These are some of my faves, but you can view the whole range of artwork and printed goods here. — Kate
