Tiger Odyssey – an abstract landscape with tigers

£1,500.00

40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of two tigers in an abstract landscape. The colours are rainbow and vibrant and the scene hints at a jungle with the tigers positioned in the branch of a tree. One tiger stares off to the right while the other has just emerged from somewhere and is wondering who we are. This is a painting that evolved organically just as a real forest does. The tigers are another in a series where I am optimistically creating worlds where they can continue to survive. The paint is used thinly and thickly and is interesting to look from close up as well as from a distance. Painted on deep edge canvas – edges white, no frame needed.

Gill Bustamante

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas. I have a Fine Art degree in sculpture (Brighton, 1983) but am mostly self taught as a painter.   My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day. I often practice a kind of Impressionism in that I walk, look at things and then paint from memory. The result is that I paint what was impressed upon me when I looked at a landscape - thus a kind of Impressionism!   I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me. I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.   All of my paintings have a story added in to them - sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.   My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.
