“My landscapes represent fantastical, re-imagined places, which in some sense are a rose-tinted view of the natural world,” says Orlanda Broom.
The artist creates lush, tropical landscapes that take the viewer into a dreamworld. These abstract scenes could be from anywhere in the world: in exotic gardens, at the heart of the jungle, or in our own imaginations. Broom’s works are exceptionally lively, seductive, and radiate with rich colors.
Using layer upon layer of acrylics and resin, the British artist gives her images astonishing depth, which is further enhanced through a very sophisticated use of glitter dust. In the LUMAS pieces, this layered appearance is shown off in an especially impressive way with prints mounted under glossy acrylic glass.
With their circular shape and shimmering, metallic photo paper, these artworks are instantly recognizable. They appear timeless, intoxicating, and enigmatic – like windows to another world.
