21 Jun ART WALL EXHIBITION: LORNA ROBERTS ‘SPIRIT OF PLACE’
The Leitrim Design House are delighted to showcase a new collection of paintings by recent graduate Lorna Roberts from June 22nd on ART WALL. Lorna’s chosen area of investigation is landscape painting and a sense of place. From observations of her locality, she has created a series of landscape paintings in oil, some of which take a more intimate look at plant life.
Lorna is particularly drawn to the windswept, untamed area where she lives in the West of Ireland. Her feeling of connection with nature and the importance she attaches to this sense is explored in this collection.
The artist states:
I do not see myself as following in the long tradition of landscape painters of the past who tried to capture the majesty and awe-inspiring beauty of nature, but rather I work on a less ambitious, more intimate scale, trying to catch those fleeting moments when a patch of grass, a hedgerow or a shaft of light through the trees surprises us and transports us to a memory or experience that resonates and creates an emotional connection…
We welcome everyone to drop by and enjoy this beautiful collection of paintings.
