Chasing a Memory

Title: Chasing a Memory
Description: Chasing a Memory is a painting of one of my own memories from some other lifetime. It shows a figure and a dog by a river in summer. It is 30x30x1.5 inches. This is a very real and happy memory to me and so, in a rare event, I decided to paint it. The actual building is a real one near the Ouse river outside Lewes. This is not the place I lived but was a good enough place to paint to represent the memory. Hence it is called Chasing a Memory. The viewer is transported into this landscape with a series of random spirals, spots and lines which gives it an energy I am very pleased with. It is predominantly green but you can see the yellow fields, the red brick of the building and the blue sky in the centre as well as wildflowers which grow at the edge of the river on both sides. Dedicated to all those who are brave enough to look beyond the mundane. Painted on deep edge canvas, dark green edges, ready to hang and comes with a 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”.
