Beth Gibbeson has a knack for choosing sets of unusual colours to place alongside one another, each one set within a limit of sharp or blurred lines. Some of the panels have tonal shading and the lone blue and green shapes form artful complements to her composition. This painting would pack a graceful punch in a large entrance hall. It’s an impressive statement piece and a sure scene-setter.

Abstraction is perfect for the contemporary interior. This work offers a stylish homage to Bauhaus combined with a bold and lively palette. I am drawn to the composition of form and the ever-so-slight tonal variations present throughout the work. Its significant size makes it a piece best appreciated from afar. In my opinion this stunning work would be perfectly positioned in a spacious, neutral room where its colours and forms could become the key focus of the space. It is a powerful abstract work and could run the risk of becoming lost amongst clutter. While warm red and amber colours dominate the work, the hints of blue, green and magenta could be complemented with strategically placed furnishings that also feature these colours.

The great use of colour and decorative effect of forms evident in this piece are reminiscent of early 20th-century cubism – except, in this case, the artist gives way to geometric forms for more rounded forms. Here, the organisation of planes is chief. The use of colour, form and scale with no borders allows this artwork to have a great dominating effect upon the viewer. The artist’s precise use of varying shapes and shades creates an overall sensation of the whole.
