Exhibition at forsight gallery 24th November to 9th December
Jill Orr is a local artist and Fine Art teacher about Newcastle THAT ROCKS!!!
Her playful possession of paint unleashes an energy that is boundless. With masterly ease she creates a rhythm in her gestural application of paint that picks up and accentuates nuance of motion.
This series of paintings supplements her expressive aptitude for the much adored bloom. Luscious combinations of startling colour fill the space of the gallery with reminders of the veracity of youth. With dreamy monikers such as ruby love, broken hearted melody and bliss bombs the state of buttery opulence is only accentuated.
Not to be underestimated is the small group of watercolours with significant emphasis on the landscape. These mellow visions in subtle shades bring harmony and rest.
Why is there the overwhelming desire to whisper the words,
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
 Words courtesy of William Shakespeare, First 2 lines of Sonnet XVIII, a personal favourite.
