Flexing Universe

Title: Flexing Universe
Description: Flexing Universe is a large semi-abstract, highly colourful and vibrant oil painting of a Sussex landscape with red kites. It is 48x46x1.5. The painting was inspired by the area of the South Downs near Cissbury ring, an ancient iron age hill fort, which you can just see to the right beyond the multiple layers of colours and glazes and wild flowers as well as the sea to the left of it. Two red kites can also be seen through he veils as these are now a much easier to spot when you walk this area. The painting was inspired by a long walk I took one summer between Chanctonbury ring hill fort and Cissbury hill fort. Nature was in total abundance, wildflowers, birds, insects where in overdrive the landscape was vibrating with life which is what I was trying to convey in the painting. The painting was made by adding many overlapping layers and so the colours tend to cause interesting optical illusions. Dedicated to everyone who is working to protect our beautiful countryside and to the South Downs National Park staff and volunteers. Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang, no frame needed, 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”.
