As if you’re gazing deep into the ocean, this work draws you into the light beyond the canvas. To enhance the deep blue tones I would hang it on a natural linen-coloured wall in a light-filled family room. Hang it over a large slip covered linen sofa, plush arm chairs in cobalt blue and Batik print cushions in rusts and browns, all sitting on a hand-woven reed Tuareg mat with leather detail.

This artwork submerges you underwater, evoking a feeling of moving forward. The work is bold and would be perfect for a front entry piece greeting guests. The idea of layering blocks of the same colour would make an impactful and memorable entry, with the front door painted in a gloss in a similar shade of deep persimmon blue contrasted against crisp white walls.

The painterly play between the inky depths and the promise of light beyond along with the scale of the work presents myriad possibilities for placement. Tranquil yet intriguingly complex and infinitely dreamy, this would work beautifully in a bedroom. Contrast with a pale timber bed with pure vintage washed bed linen in clean, crisp whites, indigo to teal blues and deep sea greens. Add a cashmere blanket or throw for warmth and understated luxury.
