Gill Bustamante is a professional artist based in East Sussex who creates large semi abstract landscape and wildlife paintings in oil on canvas. Her painting style is very distinct and often fuses art-nouveau, expressionist and semi-abstract techniques with traditional portraiture that reflect her love of nature and the landscapes around her. Her main working method has been the development of a painting style she terms ‘memory impressionism’. This involves going walking somewhere, looking at and absorbing the things she sees and experiences, and then returning home to try and capture an essence of the place from memory. By this method she captures essences and echoes of places and the feelings she has about them. She loves the ancient landscapes of England and her paintings often reflect the magical elements that such landscapes have. Gill is a self-representing artist and sells her art mostly online. Her claim to fame is that when doing her fine art degree in Brighton in the early 80’s, the British sculptor, Anthony Gormley, was her tutor. He was a nice man but gave up on her as she was not terribly ‘conceptual’. She just liked making art for the sake of it and getting paint in her hair. Gills other claim to fame is a Blue Peter badge she won in 1972 for painting a mermaid. In Spring 2020 Gill will be appearing in the BBC series Home is Where the Art Is, season two. Each of the fifteen episode sees three different UK based artists competing to win a commission from home owners who would like a bespoke piece of art for their home. Gill cannot say any more about the results as it would spoil the surprise but she thoroughly enjoyed the filming days and the visit by the BBC to her home to film her at work. Gill was delighted to meet presenter Nick Knowles and managed to get a quick picture with him. Ostensibly to show to her mum but in reality so she had some evidence she was taking part as she cannot say more until the program has been aired!

A beautiful piece of artwork that I'd admired, and eventually took the plunge and bought. It now hangs proudly in my living room, I'll never part with it.

I've purchased from the gallery a few times and it was always been without any problem and the responses always mediate. Would highly recommend this service and also the vast array of art on offer.

I found searchng difficut and had to go through loads of pictures to find ones that appealed to me - also unless I wrote down details it was really diffucult to fine one that I liked again by typing in -what I thought were key words - I'm new to this though and perhaps I don't know the most effective key words to use.

Artwork

The artwork is a view from out modern wood kitchen. It shows more the colours of orange and red unless I was to put a blue background to bring out the blue hues. However, it is a beautiful painting and my mum calls it 'fire' from an energising perspective and I wouldn't be without it now. Thank you Gill.
