PINK TREES & LILAC CLOUDS: works by Lynne Flemons

15 April - 15 May 2023



Canberra based artist Lynne Flemons work embodies a sense of play as she exposes interactions between colour, pattern and movement in the landscape.


‘My work is about interpreting my experiences of being in the landscape through research drawings and watercolours done ‘en plein air’ and paintings in acrylic on canvas or polycotton in the studio.

This series is a culmination of works based on places that I’ve spent time in over the past couple of years; Old Minton at Nimmitabel, Kelton Plain on the Monaro Plains, Kianga on the South Coast, Lake Cathie on the North Coast, and Lake Wallace at Wallerawang have been the inspiration. These places hold special memories in my mind and imagination and this is reflected in my approach to imagery and colour. There is something about the intensity of real-life experiences in nature that inspire a heightened awareness and a desire to capture this, not just the look of it, but how it feels and sounds, how it moves and changes." - Lynne Flemons
