Canberra, Australia based artist Lynne Flemons’ work embodies a sense of play as she exposes interactions between colour, pattern and movement in the natural landscape of her home country.
As a young girl in a family of boys growing up in the rural towns of inland NSW, Australia, Flemon's relished alone time with her mother. And on weekend outings, the two explored the landscape in their Ford Anglia. Perching on farm fences or the car hood, painting en plein air, they captured aspects of the rural environment, a love of which has become the basis of her career as an artist.
Flemon's paintings are "interpretations of my experiences of being emersed in the landscapes of my country." She begins her process with "research drawings" and watercolours created while in the landscape that become larger denser paintings back in the studio.
Flemons studied art at The Australian National University as both an undergraduate and post graduate obtaining a Masters of Philosophy. En plein air drawing and painting has always been integral to the artist's practice and her heightened sense of colour and shape derives from the feeling of being in the landscape.
Flemons has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Austrailia and has works in many international collections. Flemons first solo in the US will take place with ZINC contemporary in April 2023.
