LETTIE NEAME

Untitled
Oil on Canvas.

A sense of longing of places I would rather be, but are somehow unreachable, has been the basis of this project. Focusing on the colours that I see, both in each place, but also the kind of colours I feel when I am there.  

Each painting is based on a location especially important to me, but also, they are painted to appear unimaginable or unattainable- perhaps causing one to question whether these places exist. I know these places well and they hold deep sentimental value to me, however the viewer might interpret them differently. Thus, this is part of the experience.  

 

“I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way- things I had no words for”. – Georgia O’Keeffe.
