ART EDIT’S PANEL OF DESIGN EXPERTS ARE BURSTING WITH IDEAS ABOUT HOW TO HANG AND STYLE THIS ARTWORK IN YOUR HOME.
David Bromley, Over The Fence. Original polymer on canvas painting, 120 x 150cm.
Brett Mickan Interior Design, Sydney
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.
