Vanessa Croome’s second show titled “Fragmented” endeavours to illustrate personal themes that have surfaced in Croome’s life in the last few years. Love, death, and family, and how they relate to one another. How fragmented and divided life is and how we actually begin to see this as we age and experience mortality around us. Croome also continues with her exploration of abstract landscape, and the landscapes that inspire her to be outdoors and to be creative.
