‘Cartier Lifestyle’ is a sassy layered painting by Australian artist Nicole Baker. The large 200 x 200 cm artwork is completed on a stretched cotton canvas. Dense layers of acrylic have been palette knifed onto the surface and then washed off multiple times to create intricate layers and textures.

Under the predominately green colour palette, you can discover rich lime, yellow ochre, aqua and Prussian blue. Blocked areas of pale pink, royal blue and splashes of marine blue are introduced as contrasting colours. Whispers of black Sumi ink sit on top of the vibrant acrylic palette to create fleeting marks, only visible to those who pay this piece closer attention.

“My work is painted and formed over time with intensity. Snippets: A minute here, an hour there, a day here or even a week. Sometimes a painting isn’t resolved for a year or two. Time continually overlaps as do the mediums I use” Nicole Baker


‘Cartier Lifestyle’ is a bold painting; the colour palette is vast, but it has an inimitable harmony to it. It is not chaotic, but offers the viewer a deeper symphonic vision. Because this piece contains so many colours – both in the main and less obtrusive – the styling possibilities are endless.

How to Style Big Art

Play on the royal blue tones in ‘Cartier Lifestyle’ with woollen throws or floor mats, or bring out the hints of golden yellow in the painting with warm coloured velvet cushions. You also have the option to be more dramatic by pairing ‘Cartier Lifestyle’ with bright green throws and black furnishings.


Try invoking a beach-inspired atmosphere, as this piece will co-ordinate perfectly by accentuating the aqua, orange, and yellow colours: think distressed white timbers and large royal blue and white striped cushions. Be brave and mix and match patterns.

Where ever ‘Cartier Lifestyle’ hangs it will own the space, so indulge yourself and relax with it, play with it, and make it into your Zen place.

The Positive Associations with the colour Green

For those of you who are familiar with Australian artist Nicole Baker’s work, the meaning of colour is something she works with quite often.

‘Cartier Lifestyle’ allows you to empower yourself with the colour green. It is the colour of life, renewal, nature, energy, and growth.

With her energetic, expressive marks, Nicole Baker has a strong sense of movement and energy in this piece. As with all of Nicole’s work, ‘Cartier Lifestyle’ was created in fleeting moments: her work is not depicting a story as such, but an instant in time. As an artist, she has complete control over her mark-making and colour palette, and this is where her originality lies.

More importantly, Nicole invites the viewer to walk through the journey of her expressive marks and colour use that have evolved over time, layer upon layer. She wants the story of the painting to begin with the collector. How would you work this piece to have it evoke your senses? What is your style? How do you speak your visual language and own it?
