Vanguard of the Angels

Title: Vanguard of the Angels
Description: Vanguard of the Angels is a large 40x40inches underwater seascape painting of a gold angel fish under a turquoise sea. The fish swims intently along a sandy seabed with deep blue and turquoise water behind her and the rippling waves and sparkles of light above her. Below, you can see the light patterns dancing along the sand as they shine through the waves. The fish is a freshwater fish and so should not be in an ocean – hence the title. I like to think she is on an adventure and does not care where she should be or should not be – she is a rebel fish. The fish is painted in gold pearlescent paint which glitters like real fish do. Her tail and fins are extending into the water and becoming part of the patterns of light and the energy of the water. My aim with painting a small fish in a big sea is to promote a sense of space and feeling of independence. Dedicated to kindly rebels everywhere. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, comes with certificate of authenticity and

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”.
