If you’re eyes are drawn to detailed works with intense lines and tonal structure, Melanie Bellis’ atmospheric etchings will be right up your ally. Inspired by large-scale construction projects and urban scenes that are continually in a state of flux, these stunning structural works will compliment a monochrome interior perfectly.
Perhaps you’re on the look out for a painting that is both spontaneous and lively, but simultaneously balanced in composition and colour – a piece to give a touch of playfulness to any sophisticated interior. Malcolm Taylor’s mixed media works are derived from an ongoing exploration of the various moods adopted by landscapes, and he uses brushes, sticks, fingers, thumbs to scrape, score, scratch marks onto the surface.
If you’re looking to inject a burst of colour into your home this spring, Corinne Natel simply must be added to your wish list! She likes to explore the relationship between colour and the seasons or natural environments, and all while experimenting with the colour compositions themselves. Working with acrylic and mixed media, her work is vibrant and emotive.
If your taste is a tad more traditional then Benedict Doonan’s paintings – inspired by dynamic buildings and rooftops, and celebrating perspectives usually found in renaissance masterpieces – might just be for you. You’ll want to loose yourself for a while gazing at his idyllic landscapes, wishing you could be whisked away to somewhere just as sunny. With a wide price range, aspiring and experienced collectors alike will be able to find a piece of his to enjoy for years to come.
For those on the hunt for more of the magical and macabre to add to cabinets of curiosities, then Candice Tripp is the artist you’ve been searching for! Her beautiful, illustrative, and dark works are executed in oil and ink and inspired by traditional fairytales. Conveying a sense of innocence and brutal wit simultaneously, her works beckon viewers into their enchanted worlds.
Or, if you’ve designed your interior using mid-century modern clean lines and are looking to soften the scheme with some feminine, floral touches and textured throws, Yuki Aruga’s oil paintings will do just that. Her subjects are suspended, ungrounded and displaced, to engage with the form of her bouquets, while the bare canvas is left exposed. At 85cm x 65cm this piece is also ideal for paring with works of different media for a beautiful salon hang feature wall.
