Joy Brentwood’s mastery of the watercolour medium gives the organic forms in this work a beautiful illusion of light and texture. I would frame this work in a simple dark wood frame, then play upon the golden tones by incorporating them in the room’s interior. Start with a large wool rug in a burnt caramel tone with a pair of contemporary linen sofas and a large mahogany coffee table. Add lamps and accessories in a deep navy to act as accent and contrast with crisp white walls.

Joy captures the raw texture of nature’s rocky formations. The use of watercolour and a strong palette create depth within the artwork, emphasising the cool shadows created by the bright sun beyond. The verticality of this piece and the beckoning light suggest placing the artwork on a generously proportioned open stair with simple, modernist cantilevered travertine step treads, a seemingly floating patinaed chunky timber handrail topping an almost invisible glass balustrade.
