"I wanted to manipulate the paint enough to create an atmospheric depiction that would evoke the feeling of calm and tranquility, yet still resembling or hinting at a place that is not site specific but reminiscent of nature."
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.
