Orna Comes To The Gallery At Farley Farm House
We’re Alive! – An exhibition of paintings, textile and furniture by Brighton artist Orna Schneerson Pascal in the gallery at the Farley Farm House – home of the surrealists, from 15th June to August 21st 2016.
Orna is delighted to announce her solo exhibition in the gallery at Farley Farm House in Sussex which was home to iconic photographer Lee Miller and artist and champion of the surrealist movement, Roland Penrose. “I am thrilled and honoured to show my work on such a magical and inspirational place. I fell in love with the house and gardens on a visit with a group of artists and I was inspired to make a painting based on the sculpture ‘Sea Creature’ by artist and writer Antony Penrose, the son of Lee Miller and Roland Penrose. That painting led to collaboration with Antony to bring a solo exhibition of my work to Farley Farm House gallery.”
Farley Farm House is home to the Lee Miller Archives and is an amazing window onto the lives of some of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, with work by many artists including Picasso and Man Ray on display.

Orna’s art captivates the creativity and youthful imagination in her viewers, whilst inviting them to wallow and explore her world of bright urban contrasts and nature wonderment. Her art beams straight out of her imagination, avoiding any intellectual interpretation: blending patterns, sensations and expression that create something honest and pure.
