"3 of 3 paintings produced for an ep cover commission. Playing with format to produce a painting suggestive of a landscape in a square, focusing on viewing landscapes via technology and most often on social media in the form of a square."
Gemma Leanne’s work involves the enigmatic dialogue between the tangible world around us and artistic expression. Leanne uses layers of paint and abstract forms to build a range of evocative atmospheres. The minimalized landscapes dreamily spur soporific rivers or twist viewers through woeful storms. Impetuous splatters and sculptural layers of paint invite viewers to soak in these melancholic emotive and ethereal surroundings. Bewitching use of colour lends realistic renditions of seascape qualities whilst whimsical abstraction creates a subtle, suggestive landscape. The evanescence of memory seems to whisper through these pieces, revealing hidden depths of artist’s own experience.
