April Explodes

Title: April Explodes
Description: April Explodes is a 30x30x1.5 inches oil painting that depicts the exuberance and joy of bluebell season in a springtime wood. The viewer is being led along a path with dappled sunlight flickering across the path and trees and bluebells. At the end of the path, you can see the edge of the wood which is so bright you can see nothing beyond it. This is a fairy tale wood and anything could be there hiding in the trees or in the clearing beyond. My intention in painting this was to try, as I do every year in April, to capture the beautiful colours and scents of a woodland in spring. The use of very fluid paint reflects how fast bluebell season goes as the paint is distorting and merging into the scene but still shows exactly what it is. It is semi-abstract and contemporary and very vibrantly coloured. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed and comes with certificate of authenticity.

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”.
