Christopher Orr Exhibition at Artsway
I do like small pieces of art. Daguerrotypes, contact prints, tiny objects and miniature paintings engage me and seem to invite me in for closer inspection.
Which brings me to Christopher Orr, who's work is romantic and can sometimes incorporate huge landscapes. Yet most of his paintings are no bigger than my hand. The works refer to Turner, and the French Rococo painter Fragonard. They appear to be dream like scenes painted loose and lush with skies of turquoise and gold, they're very much to my liking.
You can see these painting until June the 20th at Artsway Gallery, Hampshire.
