Jeska’s strikingly dramatic work demands to be noticed. The scale, oil medium and bold colouring would suit a sophisticated dining room – a large, dark timber dining table, like Porro’s Minimo table, paired with the organic form of the Moroso Bloomy chair upholstered in terracotta-coloured wool. Walls painted in a pewter colour and a tarnished pewter Talisman 8 pendant light from Apparatus Studio hanging above. A room as refined and dramatic as the artwork.

Jeska Valk’s Oil Slick combines confidence and mystery; her contemporary take on portraiture reels the viewer in. The rich blue hues would look stunning paired with an all-white, crisp, slick interior. The large-scale use of texture and intricacy makes this piece a real show-stopper.
