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.

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.
