This diptych is reminiscent of a waterfall with its cascading verticals in
various tones of blue. It’s got movement and variation that encourage the viewers eye to move across the canvas. I imagine these framed in black timber, hung above a velvet lounge sofa in a reading room with an all monochromatic scheme other than a high gloss blue ceiling. I’d complete the room with an ornate pendant suspended above.

Larissa Nguyen’s piece would look striking if juxtaposed against a traditional setting, maybe in a formal lounge over an ornate fireplace or in a room with a mix of period and contemporary furniture and objects. Conversely, it would also work in a fairly minimalist space against white walls or concrete.

The sophisticated composition of this piece offers a beautiful balance to the calming feeling it evokes, and I am particularly drawn to the sense of connection that the diptych format creates. The adjoining pieces share a common indigo-hued palette, yet offer differences in perspective. I visualise it taking a prominent position in a neutral interior, where the subtleties of tone and texture command attention.
