This is a manic piece with colours splashed across the canvas and bold black outlining various shapes. The bright orange, yellow and white contrast against the darkness, evoking a sense of chaos. The heaviness of this artwork would work seamlessly in a moody formal dining room with textured seagrass wallpaper in elephant grey and a large walnut table. Lightness could be brought to the room with a display of amber glass objects and vases on the sideboard.

This work has a spontaneous layering of pattern and colour with abstract landscape references. Even in the loose execution, the colours are balanced and sophisticated. I can imagine this hung above a matte timber console in a hallway, subtly lit by a plaster lamp. It is dynamic and energetic which is perfect to hang in a space which you move through frequently.

KIM PEARSON

Kim Pearson Design and Decoration, Perth

To me this abstract work and its palette reminds me of modernist expressionism: loose but with geometric foundations. I would love to see this piece in an intimate library, study or small sitting room with dark, richly painted walls. Put it above a wildly comfortable upholstered mohair or velvet armchair perhaps in the brilliant orange of the painting or a very dark graphite next to a dark timber sidetable filled with books and flowers. Then add a fabulous table lamp – dimmable of course.
