“I've always loved gardens of all types. To me they are magical places that provide a welcome respite from the world and troubles. 

“As I am a studio painter who strives for her arrangements to be plausible many of my garden images are of plants and flowers arranged in a variety of Chinese porcelain - a nod to my heritage and of my training as a potter. During this time of unprecedented uncertainty I hope you find solace and beauty in my collection of painted gardens and flora.” - Gabby Malpas, April 2020

A NZ artist who has called Sydney home since 2003 after living in the UK for 14 years. You may be familiar with her still life images: flora and fauna viewed and grown in NSW Australia with more than a hint of chinoiserie.

Gabby's work could be interpreted as purely decorative. By using allusion and symbolism, I weave stories into my work based on my experiences as trans-racial, Asian adoptee: joyful and chaotic assemblage of blooms and fruit displayed with a collection of ceramics from anywhere and everywhere but with a narrative that draws the viewer in for a second look.

The result is a collection of pictures combining unexpected elements to create strangely familiar images. There are stories to each of my works that lift them from the purely decorative into a narrative piece
