This is the other thing - I have a DC 06 I'd love to frame, and a Dusseldorf 07, EMEK's coming out the yang, a Showbox Warbird... I don't even ask about framing them, because I know it will be met with an unequivical "No".... everything I own is tastefully done, but still no, no art depicting women, no war scenes... not to mention absolutely nothing by adam jones...
It kills me... over christmas I gave away a Hampton, Toronto 05 Audioslave print because I just couldn't take it anymore... The print was from one of the 1st shows I ever went to, the show was killer, I have the best memories of it... The poster was the first gigart I ever bought - I wound up getting introduced to the whole industry and JH through the A/P I bought from him (as a result of knowing a guy at my internship who collected PJ posters and was big into the gigart scene)... and for christmas I just gave it away... "No naked women, ever"... doesn't matter that it meant the world to me... got so sick of it sitting in a closet at my parents house that I gave it to my college roommate who has asked me for it a million times.... now I get to see it once a year when I visit him.... at least it's no longer being hide from the world I guess...
I just don't get it...
This sounds like a very sad situation.
I don't know what I would do if I were being berated by someone I loved over something that was so dear to me.
Collecting and hanging PJ ART
is very taste specific but as long as it's done well, there shouldn't be so much push back. It sounds like it's her way or the highway and I image it's that way a lot.
It seams reasonable that you should get one room in the house, be it a guest or office, some place that you can hang as many that will fit. You can rotate them throughout the year to enjoy all your prints.
If some are truly offensives to her you could maybe hang those inside the closet.
It's a matter of respecting each other.
BTW, I'm a female and I have a beautiful home filled with ART
, I only get compliments on it even when I know the viewers aren't into it.
I hope things get better for you, the pain in your words is palpable.
