Angela Robertson-Buchanan, Regent Parrot Feather Study 1. Photographic montage on fine art matte paper, edition of 20, 59.4 x 84.1 cm

BRETT MICKAN

A serene study in simple graphics, negative space and the organic beauty of nature. The calmness of this work would make it ideal for a children’s bedroom, the bold bursts of colour making the work age-appropriate as the child grows. I would furnish the room with natural wood tones and soft linen to harmonise with the subject.

SUZANNE GORMAN

Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney

This work creates an inviting contrast between intricacy and simplicity. With the use of a stark white background, the feathers are viewed as an artefact. Place this in a lounge area or large bedroom for a contemporary take on a traditional subject.

JANE STARK

Angela’s study of parrot feathers sensitively captures their natural light and luminosity. Forming part of a collection, it would sit well with Indigenous seedpods or a nest. The collection would be great housed in Muuto’s stacked box storage system, coupled with a Grey felt Organic Highback chair from Vitra and an Old Yarn PomPom rug from Loom.
