Gazing into the layers of colour and pattern in this work you have the impression of looking into the depths of a forest. Although predominantly abstract, it acts like a landscape, opening a window into the space in which it hangs. To contrast the cool tones, I would hang it in a space with terracotta-coloured walls and a polished concrete floor. I would add a couple of Minotti Cortina armchairs in grey leather and a large, curved custom sofa upholstered in deep blue mohair. Flanking the sofa would be wenge timber tables with contemporary terracotta table lamps.

SUZANNE GORMAN

Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney

Tainton travels regularly throughout eastern Australia, from the Hunter Valley to the Darling Downs and the Granite belt of south-eastern Queensland. Her paintings are inspired by the changing seasons and the beauty of the landscape she explores. The deep moody hues of this piece suggest it was winter travels that inspired the artist this time. Interiors can be striking when dark tones are layered upon dark tones, similar to this painting. It would be simply beautiful to see this piece hung on indigo walls in an otherwise formal living room filled with sculptural pieces of furniture. On the floor is a luxurious bespoke abstract silk rug in gently muted tones of peach, blush, pale grey and sage. Alongside the charcoal velvet sofa are two vintage Danish armchairs in tan leather and a glass-topped brass coffee table. It’s an eclectic and sophisticated space, that is still bright and light-filled even with its moody walls.

KATHRYN ROBSON

Robson Rak Architecture & Interiors, Melbourne

This painting speaks to me of longing; longing for something beyond, something unattainable. The gentle pastel colours are broken up by a vibrant moss green that draws you into the scene, overlapped by a network of pale pink lines. I’d like to see this painting hung on dark walls and floors in a low-lit, moody room. I’d light it with directional ceiling mounted lights that highlight the detailed line work in the painting and encourage the viewer to be drawn into the depths of the canvas.
