About the artwork

Summer Fragments is a large landscape oil painting inspired by wildflowers and the Sussex South Downs in summertime. It is 36x48x1.5 inches. The painting is contemporary and messy art nouveau in style and shows a riot of wildflowers in the foreground with fields and trees in the distance and the sea beyond that. To the right is an undulating hill which was actually the ancient hill fort of Cissbury Ring. To the left are two red kites flying over the fields. I took a few very long walks in the summer around Chanctonbury Ring (also a hill fort) and Cissbury and fell totally in love with the flowers and atmosphere and the history of the land which is still very much in evidence. Red kites now being quite easy to spot along the South Downs now also had to make an appearance. I made the painting by the creation of lots of layers and transparent glazes which gives it a fragmented feeling. This is how it felt to me walking along in this beautiful place seeing the fragments of the present but overlaid with bits of the past. I hope I did it justice. It is painting on deep edge canvas, white edges, no frame necessary. Dedicated to all those who are working to preserve this beautiful area and its wildlife.

*Gill Bustamante B.A. – Artist and Art Tutor, Sussex.* My name is Gill Bustamante and I paint large contemporary landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Nouveau and something I term ‘memory impressionism’. This is where I go walking somewhere rural, look at and absorb the things I see and experience, and then come home and try to capture an 'echo' of the place from memory, including any wildlife I may have seen.
