Orlanda Broom: Rewild
Grove Square Galleries, London
Until 11 June 2021
Mysterious, exotic and ablaze with brilliant colour, the mesmerising floralscapes of British artist Orlanda Broom draw the eye every which way you look. Her highly-saturated imagined visions combine fictional plantlife with abstract organic forms and seem to exist outside of a specific time or place.
In lockdown Broom focused on the more jubilant aspects of her practice, creating a new series of paintings celebrating the natural world.
‘The connection to nature and aspects of escapism have always been a theme but it’s particularly pertinent now as people’s appreciation of being outdoors has grown,’ she says. ‘I’d like my love of nature to come through and engage people to also think about what the future holds… can our planet rewild?’
Currently on display at Grove Square Galleries in Fitzrovia, these buoyant new works offer a colourful escape from our current — dare we say, still-a-little-frazzled — state of being. Hop to it!
