Just like tropical plants in nature, the vibrant colour of this work bursts off the canvas. To balance this bold painting I would hang it in a room with white walls and complement the strength of colour with furniture pieces. I’d love to see the sumptuous, 70s-inspired Arkley curved sofa from Jardan, upholstered in a taupe colour with acid green cushions. Add a pair of Ruché armchairs from Ligne Roset in cobalt blue quilted velvet and terracotta side tables with lighting in black metal – a bold, contemporary symphony.

Wildly vibrant, this piece is suited to an entry hallway where it will welcome guests with its bold jewel colours. I’d like to see it hung on a wall just barely bigger than the piece itself, without too much white space framing it, so that it is contained and can sing loudly without overwhelming. I see honey-toned patinaed timber floors and walls in charcoal grey with exaggerated brushstrokes visible. Layers of texture and deep tones will complement and contain this confident piece.

Sylvia Ditchburn’s work Tropical Garden with Crab Claw is a vibrant, colourful painting that would benefit from being in a room with even more colour and texture. I can see this piece on a cafe wall nestled amongst equally dynamic colourful works.
