Gabby Malpas is a New Zealand born artist who has called Sydney her home since 2003. Prior to that she lived and worked in England and South-East Asia. Her delicate and zen-like art is often a composition taken from her garden or home, but viewed through a prism of chinoiserie. It would be simplistic to consider her work as purely decorative, there is a continual but subtle use of allusion and symbolism that repays the keen observer such as the tiny Maneki-Neko (Japanese Lucky Cat) interspersed in this cat wrapping paper design.
