Lorna Robertson is a British artist, best known for her portraits painted in vibrant colours. Her characteristic bright palette creates a feeling of warmth that brings emotional familiarity to her subjects. She uses relaxed gestures and frontal gazes, to make the mood of her subjects familiar and inviting.
The artist strives to keep her subjects free from a specific location or time. The subjects usually float in front of abstracted backdrops, hovering inside geometric patterns, or sensuous blocks of colour.
While each portrait tends to only contain one person, they are generally made and presented in groups like family portraits. With her expressive representations of the sitters, the artist examines the material characteristics of painting, to bring out psychological dimensions, which focus on capturing a likeness while at the same time leaving their identity fluid and open to interpretation.
