Orla Kane


Orla Kane (B.1999) is a Scottish artist based in Glasgow. She graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2021 before attending the Royal Drawing School’s Intensive Term earlier this year (2022). 

Orla currently works in the space between drawing and painting, creating layered and immersive environments. At its heart, her work thinks about landscapes and their loose connections with anthropomorphic forms and conditions; all holding colourful interactions within. Working with coloured pencils and liquid media she draws within the boundaries of loose marks, allowing painterly landscapes to pool out across ambiguously defined surfaces.
