Glenys’ lyrical line work seemingly captures this figure mid-movement. Both figurative and abstract, this is a work that could complement any interior. I would use a plexiglass mount with no frame to play on the fluid structure and lightness of the work. A bright space with white walls would enhance this illusion; a minimal contemporary space with concrete floors filled with fabulous vintage pieces. An antique wool carpet, a wood and gold velvet sofa, a pair of Biedermeier arm chairs and a large 1970s vintage Venini crystal chandelier. This space is all about treating every decorative element as a piece of art.

The beauty of the perfect French hang is to create a wall of art that provides contrasts of size, style and medium. I see The Muse as the ideal starting point to craft a cocooning library slash study, filled with countless works of art. Buzza’s piece is strong and elegant. Imagine walls first papered in natural herringbone seagrass with clean, snow-white woodwork to contrast the chocolate timber floors. This room would have a European sensibility – objects and art collected abroad over time. A daring cobalt leather sofa, boxy in shape sitting, adjacent to a wicker cabinet and a smaller curved chair, armless and covered in sheepskin. The space is layered and intense. The Muse offers relief and a place to rest the eye from the crazy busy of this room.

This drawing, The Muse, strikes a real chord with me. Glenys Buzza has created a masculine figure with a large amount of movement and emotion through line work and shading – I love this piece! The man appears to be facing the viewer but there is also a figure drawn with his face turned away, like a hologram. The works twists and turns, playing tricks on your eye and keeping you engaged. I could place this drawing in many different spaces, but ideally I’d place it on the dark, moody walls of a lowly lit dining room where it can become the talking point of many dinner conversations.
