Spellbound Tigress

Title: Spellbound Tigress
Description: Spellbound Tigress is a 36x36 inches oil painting of a semi abstract tiger hiding in a forest. The tiger looks over her shoulder at us looking deceptively friendly. Most of her body is in shadow and the view through the trees behind her leads you past her and into the distance. The background and the tiger are merging as if she is flickering in and out of existence like the Cheshire Cat of Alice in Wonderland fame. I had this appearing and merging idea in mind due to the precarious position tigers are in as regards their future survival. The style of the painting is contemporary art nouveau and the painting itself definitely has a presence. This tiger’s eyes will follow you around the room. The inspiration was simply that every artist loves to paint a tiger – who doesn’t? But I tried here to do it in a different, not wildlife art, way. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, not frame necessary.

Gill Bustamante

Artist Biography:

Gill Bustamante is a professional artist based in East Sussex who creates large semi-abstract landscape, seascape and wildlife paintings in oil on canvas. Her painting style is very distinct and often fuses art-nouveau, impressionist and semi-abstract techniques with traditional portraiture that reflect her love of nature, animals, birds and the flora and fauna of the landscapes around her. She loves the ancient landscapes of England and her paintings often reflect the magical elements that such landscapes have. Gill’s main working method has been the development of a painting style she terms ‘memory impressionism’. This method involves going walking somewhere, looking at and absorbing the things she sees and experiences, and then returning home to her studio to try and capture an echo or essence of the place from memory - including any wildlife she may have seen. By this method, she captures precise moments in times at different seasons and the feeling she has about them. Gill completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983 and has painted since she was three. In her own words: “Painting always makes me happy along with cake, bunnies, driving erratically, BBC 6 music and totally irreverent comedy”.
