A solo exhibition
16 JUNE – 30 JULY 2022
Grove Square Galleries are proud to present ‘Shapeshifters’, the first solo show of British contemporary artist Orlanda Broom’s abstract works which burst with explosive movement, fluid shapes, and a playful colour palette in a riotous celebration of colour, form, and technique.
The title of the exhibition evokes the idea of transience and the chimeric nature of what it means to be human, animal, or even an inanimate object – embracing the mystery that surrounds this change and transition. In ‘Shapeshifters’, the artist becomes the ‘shape shifter’ in quite literal, non-mythological terms and is the creator of this transfiguration, capturing the movement and warping of the resin on her canvas. The way in which the paintings are made also relates to this metamorphosis taking place; taking the liquid, runny-honey consistency of resin and setting it into a hard, glass-like surface.
