We are delighted to announce the return of Narrabri-based painter Brooke Dalton, whose richly expressive new suite of colour-soaked interior vignettes is now available to preview and require by request.

Conjured via gestural sweeps of impasto paint in lush garden pinks, greens and purples, Dalton’s gorgeous still-life paintings present a bounty of fresh-cut flowers arranged in a spirit of bohemian insouciance and whimsy on tables teeming with books and other curios.

The air of effortless, lived-in eclecticism and warm elegance that colours the spaces Dalton depicts is perfectly matched by her loose, energetic, exuberant painting style, which eschews overwrought detail in favour of movement, life, atmosphere and emotion.

From deep-magenta peonies and creamy dahlias to succulents spilling out of painted Chinoiserie vessels, the artfully undone arrangements at the centre of each painting feel like a perfect distillation of the mood and character of the libraries, living rooms and other uplifting spaces that surround them.

To request a catalogue and discuss acquiring works from the exhibition before its opening, please email colinesoria@michaelreid.com.au
