As you gaze into this work, it’s as though artist Sue Leeming has captured the emotional response of the landscape. The organic forms drift across the canvas provide a sense of movement, so a room with plenty of movement, like a family room, would be ideal. Hang this work on pale walls with natural wide plank oak floors. Mirror the fluidity with a large curved modular sofa in a tomato coloured velvet. Add a vintage Tibetan rug in warm reds and brown and a pair of mid-century armchairs upholstered in blush colour. To complete the look, add oak coffee and side tables, with bronze table lamps and oversized linen shades.

This piece is dynamic and energetic with its warm fiery oranges and reds softened by the transparent white layering. The organic horizontal lines mimic a broken horizon while the deeper tones in the background emulate the flickering of fire. This piece is perfect for a dining room, as oranges and reds promote liveliness and social interaction. For a casual dining room, timber floors covered with coarsely woven sisal, sheer linen curtains in the softest pink linen, walls in pale umber and fresh white flowers and candles massed along the sideboard, with Fragile Land as the centre piece of the room.

Fragile Land reminds me of the swampy undergrowth of Australian mangroves, the inky tones of the red ochre slipping amongst the tidal flow. This abstract painting provides an insight into what lies beneath. The artist has expertly executed the oil and ink to create depth and layers. This painting would be stunning hung in a dark, moody restaurant or cocktail bar, with sage green walls, dim lighting, and decorative ornate furniture. It would be a thought-provoking addition to the room.
