Gill’s medium of oil over acrylic gives this work a unique textural softness. The colouring ¬– both bold and muted – adds vibrancy to this small-scale work. I would love to see it hanging low above a bedside table as part of a composition with a table lamp and accessories. White walls, a pale teal velvet-upholstered headboard and plush white Frette bedding.

Gill’s RIVER GUM is gorgeous. The hues are playful and slightly retro yet very now. The use of white, negative detailing provides the work with that extra level of detail that draws your eye in. Placed in a study area or home office space, this work would brighting and lift the spirits of the interior.
