Single Panel Metal Art vs Multiple Panel


Pros and Cons of Solid Panels
If you are debating between a single panel version of our metal artwork and a multiple panel version, it really just boils down to personal taste. From an installation standpoint the single panels are easier to hang, simpler to level, and tend to be sturdier on your wall. So if you don't have a visual preference between single and multiple panels and want to make your hanging/mounting process easier, then go with the single. From an aesthetic standpoint, you want to consider the surrounding decor and structure of the room.

Obviously the single panel pieces are rectangular or square with a sturdy and powerful presence. They have a very obvious geometric shape, which works great in modern settings. However, if your space is already covered with basic rectangular mirrors, rectangular windows, and rectangular shelves, then it might be effective to break it up a bit with one of our unique multi-panel metal layouts. However, if your space has circles and abstract shapes and designs already, then a nice solid panel metal art design might be just what is needed to balance all of that out and give some structure to the display.

If you still have trouble deciding between single panel metal art and their multiple panel counterparts, send us a photograph of your space where the artwork will hang and we can superimpose both options into the artwork so you can see both options and make your decision a visual one.

When you view the "Le Man Composition" piece, several points inevitably come to mind. First, the bending, winding paths of the various textures produce impossible movement and flow that make the stainless steel panel appear more like mercury, in a solid state of fluid motion. Next, you begin to notice the spectacular variety in the grind patterns, as each section represents one of Nicholas' signature grind patterns - to represent the broadest spectrum of Nicholas Yust's grinding capabilities,...

Lattice' is one of Nicholas' single-panel metal wall sculptures whose design appears quite simple, but in reality is very technical. The criss-crossing grind strips are carefully created by the artist, by hand, in varying lengths and widths. It is very important that they remain straight and uniform to maintain the strong, rectangular form of the artwork. Lattice is a piece that looks wonderful in offices and corporate buildings, or simply rooms that need a solid, squared panel to add some...

This pure metal modern wall sculpture sculpture, entitled 'Magma', is yet another new addition to our Contemporary Metal Art Single-Panel Gallery. This piece is unique in that the raised center panel is only differenciated from the larger back panel by the grind pattern applied to its surface. Generally one of the two panels will be painted to contrast with the other, but this piece creates its own separation by the loud, noticeable grind pattern applied to the top metal panel. The grinds on...

The Linea sculpture is basically a vertical, single-panel relative of the Polar Encapsulation sculpture, which is one of Nicholas' most renound pieces. It's upward ripples are often compared to oceanic waves. These consistent wavy patterns are carefully ground with a steady hand. The slick, polished surface adds to the watery appearance of the metal panels. Beams of light reflect individually off of the deep grind patterns, adding to the illusion. Variations of this grind pattern can be found...

The 'Doppler Effect' is a very unique member of our modern metal art collection because unlike many of Nicholas' sculptures the grind pattern does not cover the entire surface. It is in one isolated path traveling from one edge the other. Nicholas has to be so careful when grinding this sculpture because the edges of the winding pattern are actually outlined first by hand with a blade After that is completed, he meticulously grinds the metal, also by hand, within the outlined path.

Tantalum Single is a variation of one of Nicholas Yust's most popular designs, his flawless starburst pattern named Tantalum. So many elements come into play that make this piece truly a spectacle: the impossible precision as the lines meet in the tiniest of points in the center. The effectively balanced and symmetrical rays bursting from the point. The compensation for the fact that the grinder spins in only one direction as he makes this piece, yet the lines must go in different directions,...

Rain is a rather universal, very attractive metal art piece by Nicholas Yust. The dotty grind pattern bubbles along in hundreds of vertical paths and streaks, covering the surface of this aluminum panel.

Precipitation is a very unique metal artwork with a geometric theme to it.
