Andrea Hammond "LEITMOTIF: LEAF"
G4: Education Wing Foyer Gallery
13 March to 2 April
"Foliage seems to be the poor cousin of the floral world. But I think leaves are beautiful in themselves and I want to set them centre-stage albeit in a dead and skeletal form. There are gold and earth colours to embed them in so the finished effect is part fossil leaves and part accidental /purposed paint.
I have called the show LEITMOTIF: LEAF because this series of paintings uses a staccato repetition of one thing which is desiccated leaves in ,manner which is akin to the musical Leitmotif, a repeating signature phrase which builds the larger work "
