"I covered the canvas in a layer of copper acrylic paint before I began, creating a rich surface on which to work. The colours of Autumn all around me really influenced this piece and a melancholy feeling around the change of seasons in this particularly strange time". - Ange Mullen-Bryan, 2020.
Inspired by the nature that surrounds her, Ange Mullen-Bryan has a particular fondness for Nordic light and its effect on the vast skies, deep forests and sprawling lakes.This is a land where the imagination runs away and the uncanny resides, where the real and imagined co-exist. Enticed by precarious boundaries, where land meets lake and light meets dark. In these unsteady places you are neither at risk nor safe but feel both at once.
