As one of Australia’s most recognisable artists, David’s work comes with a certain cache. His Children series offers a wonderful sense of nostalgia, illustrating a simple and carefree time of discovery. I would love to place this large, graphic work in a dedicated formal dining space to contrast the playfulness of the subject. The figures gazing off the canvas open a window into the room and allow the viewer to imagine a view beyond. I would like a dramatic interior scheme with ebony-stained wood floors and walls upholstered with linen. I also imagine a large dining table from Lowe Furniture with a wenge stain and plush-armed dining chairs with burgundy velvet fronts and tan leather backs. Then, hanging above, a Talisman 8 pendant light from Apparatus in a tarnished silver finish.

This work is painted in David Bromley’s recognisable ‘story book’ style, with bold brushstrokes and outlined forms. The obvious location for this work is a children’s room but it could also be hung in a wide entrance hall to a grand Victorian home. I would suggest painting the walls in a sky blue to reference the painting, and hanging the work amongst multiple other pieces of varying style, size and shape. This would create an art wall that would be a point of interest when moving through the home.
