Through a purely abstract medium, Sabina D’Antonio cleverly captures the rugged weathered texture of a coastal horizon. This piece would work best by contrasting its organic texture with a tailored interior. I would hang it in a traditional oak-panelled drawing room. Add a pair of black stained mid-century side tables flanking a quilted Redondo sofa and chairs, a 1970s vintage brass table, lamps and a white French papier-mâché chandelier for a glamorous, art-filled space.

The harshness of the jet-black weighs heavy on the bottom of this work, drawing our eyes to the title of the piece: the Horizon. The word “horizon” ironically runs perpendicular to the image of the horizon. This would be suited to a rumpus room with a relaxed style and chunky retro 1970s furniture – think an orange cord sofa and a shag pile rug.
