David’s method of layering oils gives his work a beautiful sense of depth and movement. As much abstraction as realism, this work could hang in any interior. I’d love to see it in a sitting room with taupe-coloured linen upholstered walls. A contemporary tan linen Aren sofa by Adam Goodrum and a couple of B230 Featherston armchairs in duck green velvet, all placed on the beautiful texture of a vintage Moroccan rug from K U L C H I.

David Wiggs’ Manly ferry passing Dobroyd – Plein air captures a place I know well. The heavy use of layering in pastel tones creates dream-like vibes. As it is miniature in scale, this piece would look beautiful in any interior. It’s calming, neutral and paired-back, making it a perfect addition to a laid-back family home.
