As seasons swirl, swell & subside, a vase acts as an anchor for stillness and invites a moment of observation. Time is noticed, celebrated and entangled; displayed in the home until the stems turn and spill petals on the table.
Lianne Mellor is a painter and allotment holder. She is interested in the things we choose to display in our homes, and how these domestic scenes can be at once generic and deeply personal. Her paintings celebrate seasonality, domesticity and the objects we choose to share our lives with.
‘In a Vase’ exhibits a new collection of still life paintings, all set in the artist’s own living room. The blue walls and teak table remain constant whilst the subjects shift and change with the seasons and a growing collection of vessels in which to contain them. The form, colour, shapes and habits of the flowers, fruits and vegetables acknowledge the process of bloom and decay and the attempts to capture an elusive moment, in a vase.
On 31st October, join us for a special festive edition of Anomaly Life Drawing that incorporates elements of Lianne's still life paintings. Tickets are £4 and will be available soon - watch this space.
