An exhibition of new work by LUCY ORCHARD at Modern Artists Gallery, Berkshire.
Modern Artist's Gallery is delighted to announce the return of artist Lucy Orchard with a stunning new collection of paintings entitled 'Locus Amoenus'. The culmination of a year's work, the show presents monumental canvases infused with literary and artistic references typical of those which have become hugely popular among contemporary art collectors. An integral part of this new body of work is a series of illusory watercolours which show the artist's skills at their absolute best. The viewer is presented with a sequence of dreamlike images combining both a sense of peaceful tranquillity and darker implications which hover close to the surface.
This collection of work is a tribute to traditional artistic working methods presented through layers of references and overtones that will engage and captivate its audience.
