MIRANDA LOWE painter
This exhibition of oil paintings is based on experiences in Madagascar from visits in 2005 and 2011. Miranda’s work is influenced by the intense colours and golden light which is typical of October/November before the rainy season. She has been inspired by the Dali-esque appearance of the Grandidier Baobab Trees and aimed to capture their colossal height. The ring-tailed lemurs are set against a background of reddish-orange earth and appear almost translucent – a reminder that the “ghosts of the forest” have had much of their habitat removed by deforestation and are an endangered species.
