This work successfully conveys a sense of depth and mood by carefully combining colour and texture. Most notably, the fine yet minimal line work employed by the artist delicately punctuates the soft tones of the background, creating a visual journey through the abstract realm.

Lorna Ballantyne Epps has created a beautiful contemporary artwork with so much to offer. Appropriately titled Softly, Softly, this work is subtle and oozes a sense of calm. The composition is engaging, with the artist’s careful use of line and brushwork drawing my eye from one edge to the other. Measuring just over one metre by one metre, this work is versatile for positioning – however, I would personally feel it best positioned within my living space. It could also perhaps offer a warm first impression to any corporate reception area.

Sydney Road Gallery, Seaforth

What a warm, expressive landscape. This artwork would be a knock-out feature in a grand entrance with a darker toned, matt wall. The contrast of the lighter layers and hues of soft whites would lift the light in any room that needs a boost of fresh energy. With the tree standing tall and leaning out, almost looking over the deep valley below, Lorna is clearly enjoying spontaneous mark-making with the finishing touches of oil pastel.
