Step into the world of Meadow – paintings to mediate on nature’s renewal through the magic of flowers. Join Hunter Valley artist Amanda O’Bryan at her solo exhibition Meadow – let the flowers speak to you, showing at LEDA Gallery in Newcastle, June 16- 2023.
Meadow, is an exploration of the natural cycles of growth and change, inviting you to contemplate the dualities of life. From seeding to regeneration, even in the peacefulness of a meadow, life is constantly transforming. Artists, including Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, and Constable, were inspired by the allure of meadow flowers. As Monet once said, the meadow changes with every moment, but its atmosphere always exudes vitality.
Through the imagery of Meadow’s abstract paintings, the collection continues a reoccurring theme of healing, change and growth for the artist. The exhibition will show works of canvas, hanging drapes, assemblage, and canvas collage, offering a visual meditation for wellbeing. With curiosity and an experimental approach to art-making, Meadow hopes to inspire a personal journey towards reflection and inner peace.
The concept, Meadow was initially rejected as a collection by Amanda O’Bryan due to its perceived simplicity. However, the phrase “Let the flowers tend to you,” from a song, spoke to her, and everything fell into place, giving purpose to the entire collection.
You are invited you to come and let the flowers tend to you.
