As seasons swirl, swell and subside, a vase acts as an anchor for stillness and invites a moment of observation.
In a Vase exhibits a new collection of still life paintings, all set in the same location (the living room of the artist). Here, the blue walls and teak table provide a constant backdrop for subjects that shift and change with the seasons. The transient form, colour and shapes of the flowers and produce acknowledge the process of bloom and decay; capturing an elusive moment within a vase.
Lianne Mellor is a painter based at Yorkshire Artspace's Exchange Place Studios. She is a passionate allotment holder and all the subjects of her paintings are all harvested in her plot. Her work examines the things we choose to display in our homes, and how 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.
Open Tuesday–Saturday, 10am–4pm.
Friday 8th October, 7–9pm
There will also be a closing event in partnership with Anomaly Life Drawing – visit the Yorkshire Artspace website for updates.
