Australian still life is a popular subject and Captive Beauty is a beautiful example with it’s delicately painted gumnuts and leaves. The soft palette allows the eye to gently appreciate each detail, from the cut-glass vase to the woodgrain of the surface. The composition is balanced and pleasing in its simplicity.

Jerico Contemporary, Sydney
When curating art in your home, it is important to consider sight-lines as the work will be viewed from different vantage points in the room. I would recommend placing this work near a window, so that the Eucalyptus leaves depicted in the painting can lead your eye towards the natural world just outside. The still life, after all, is a celebration of pleasures.
