JMW Turner: TURNER FROM THE TATE
Deborah Barlow, Peridawna, detail
Orbilinia is a series of abstract paintings that explores the nature of otherworldliness. Rarefied, meditative and serene, they hang together to round out a suggestive sense of celestial sanctuary and sacred retreat. Complex and meticulously layered, their atmospheric materiality shows no trace of brushes or traditional painting tools. Their surfaces grow by slow accretion similar to the way nature marks the land, with each layer exposing as well as veiling its elements.

J M W Turner, Sun Setting over a Lake (c 18400)
Turner was supreme … in his response to real places. In the notebooks and in the many watercolours of sites in Britain, Switzerland or Italy, he is able to see and to reveal to us something that all too often remains invisible before our very eyes: the wholeness and life of nature manifested in the light that dissolves all particular things into unity.
