BRETT MICKAN

Brett Mickan Interior Design, Sydney

What appears as an accidental play of colour gently washing across the canvas is given a layer of depth and control by the linework. A simple frame of natural Australian timber – like Blackbutt – would set the work of beautifully. The scale of this piece would sit comfortably in a large contemporary living room: wood floors, soft grey walls and blue upholstery to accent the predominately warm tones. I would add tables and accents in black metal, natural timbers and terracotta. A black metal and frosted pendant from the Laurent collection from Lambert & Fils would complete this contemporary, casual retreat.

SUZANNE GORMAN

Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney

Tones of amber, olive and ochre morphing into one another with soft linework, barely there, draws you in gently. Like looking at a rugged Australian landscape from above or perhaps the bark of an ancient tree. I would love to see this hung in a contemporary dining room featuring tan leather chairs and a solid timber dining table with raw uneven edges, where its energy will enhance positivity by stimulating both the appetite and conversation.

KATHRYN ROBSON

Robson Rak Architecture & Interiors, Melbourne

Carol’s soft, diluted tones are punctuated by fine lines that give this painting great depth and movement. The earthy colours and forms are reminiscent of a raging bushfire and would be a dramatic addition to a living space with natural timber textures and a visual connection to a green landscaped outlook.
