About

The Contemporary London, in partnership with Space W10, is proud to present a selection of works by artist, Orlanda BroomOrlanda 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. Most recently her work has been on exhibition at James Freeman Gallery and ‘Obsession; Love, Ritual, Collection’, a group show curated by Charlotte Meddings.

‘My paintings are lush and colourful landscapes that exist as part of a fantastical, re-imagined place. I have applied a hyper, saturated view of the world and the scenes I paint make no reference to human or animal existence. These places could be future or past as they are untouched; wild, overgrown and ripe to the point of rotten. The initial joyousness, the lure of beauty and colour is tempered by an uneasy sense of abandonment, there’s a toxicity implied in the use of unrealistic colour. I use resin, which has a glasslike finish and echoes the sappy excretions that the plants might exude. There’s a dichotomy between wanting to explore such a place and the inevitable entrapment should you find yourself there.’
