Anita Shelbourne - Landscape Patterns 

Anita Shelbourne

“Landscape Patterns”

Anita Shelbourne has taken inspiration from the patchwork-like look of the countryside and painted a landscape that looks like an actual patchwork. These patchwork patterns of the foreground are similar to the works of the Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. Klimt, like Shelbourne, builds up pattern using shapes and colours, making the vibrant abstract pattern an integral part of the compostition.
