Lorna Grear Dusty Pink Tree Limbs

‘Dusty Pink Tree Limbs’ reflects my series of work titled Paralands. Paralands is an imaginary word, stemming from the amalgamation of paradise and landscape. This painting in particular was originally inspired from a secret garden found in a housing estate. My paintings aim to reclaim the hand-­‐made, turning the digital into a personal gesture.

SUMMER
‘No one can help me now’. Mary sat by the rock, swept up in the light and earth and wind; she carried on, staring at time moving, she tried not to think about space, spacelessness and timelessness. The gap wherein she sat, not doing, not washing, not eating, not cleaning, not working, not scrolling or talking, nor being busy.

Rustle, a thin line, a curved shape, the building of an imaginary moment, not real, working in order not to work; beauty, structure, scaffold, light, colour.

These paintings were made in Summer 2018 in a place a long distance from the city. They are regarded as preliminary works, experimental, and act as sketches (like photographs) for other ideas. They’ve not been shown before.
