New Blood Art Statement

Florid, rich colour creates a visual entrapment in the works of Orlanda Broom. Wildly blossoming, excessive jungles are exuberantly portrayed in a whirlwind of colour. The paintings themselves warn of temptations. Tempestuous juxtapositions are explored through the human desire to explore yet the dangers that we should inevitably fall upon; not just in the nature we explore, but also, consequently in the losing of ourselves. The intoxicating use of colour, may lead us astray with their bewitching beauty. The paintings are a testament to human desire whilst also satisfyingly leaving no proof of our, or other animal existence. These works beseech a world untouched, unblemished, blooming and completely unattainable.

Orlanda Broom has exhibited regularly in London and Internationally. Her paintings have been selected for curated shows and competitions including Threadneedle Prize, NOAC, BEEP and the RA Summer Exhibition. In 2016 Orlanda completed a major commission (4m x 4m) for the lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel in New York.

Artist Statement

I have two bodies of work: lush, exotic landscapes and contemporary abstract pieces. Connecting these bodies of work is a strong sense of colour, references to organic forms and the exploration of the mediums I work with. The abstract paintings are created through a process that involves no intervention with tools or brushes, just the flow and manipulation of the canvas and medium. There is an immediacy and freshness borne out of this way of working which is complementary to the layered aspect of my landscape painting technique. The landscapes are timeless places that are wild and abandoned, initial joyousness and allure is tempered by the sense of entrapment should you find yourself in such a place. I use resin in my work, which has a high-gloss glasslike finish and adds to the three dimensional quality of my paintings.
