The simplicity and serenity of ritual in contrast with the fine art medium of oil makes this large format work a piece to be noticed. I would hang it in a formal living room space on a soft grey coloured wall above a mauve velvet sofa and wenge stained side tables with vintage gold Murano table lamps. I would then add a hand-woven Tibetan wool rug in tomato soup tones and contemporary architectural track lighting, with one focused on the work to enhance the artists play of light on the water.

Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney

Frank Boyle has used oil on canvas in order to convey the depth and richness of Indian culture. Capturing the reflection of the surrounding landscape, he uses colour and form to evoke mood and emotion. This moody piece of art could hang above a fire-place in a traditional study, with glossy rich burgundy walls and textured linen drapery in the same tones, where the art can be admired whilst cocooned amongst the library shelves.

BRENDAN WONG

Brendan Wong Design, Sydney

Frank is based in the Blue Mountains but inspired by India, making for fascinating works. The reflections in the water and striding figure give the work movement and intrigue. This mysterious painting would work well hung on a dark wall so the upper horizon disappears into the wall and the figure is prominent.
