Luminous Landscapes

Renae Morris

Luminous Landscapes evokes a moment for reflection. Renae's compositions are framed in order to direct your view around the canvas to emphasise particular elements in nature, such as the flickering light off water or the changing colours in the sky.

Reflections, geometry and divergences feature in each work, highlighting a paradox in nature: growth favouring the efficiency of patterns but with potentially infinite natural variations - embodying the clash between order and chaos.
