ARTWORK STATEMENT: LINDA LOCKYER

 

 

My artwork, entitled “Washhouse Rhapsody” is inspired by

 

Washhouse Beach at Dunbogan. I love to walk, swim and snorkel

 

there. It is a place of immense beauty, with amazing rock pools and

 

a pristine beach whose peaceful atmosphere I find most

 

exhilarating.

 

A rhapsody can be a piece of music or a poem which has no formal

 

structure but expresses powerful feelings. It is an effusively

 

enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of emotions.

 

I feel that this definition also adequately describes my style of

 

painting, particularly in this artwork.

 

I have used the colours which attracted me most in this coastal

 

environment to portray my subject matter. Using Acrylic paint

 

applied with spatulas, brushes and cloths, the artwork has been

 

created in a somewhat meditative state. Whilst painting, I was

 

imagining, feeling and reliving the experience of being in this

 

wonderful place. The marks were applied deliberately, delicately

 

and with careful consideration in order to capture the exquisite

 

nature of Washhouse Beach.

Paintings by Linda Lockyer, Sculptures by Stuart Wellings

 

 

The forces of nature and how they influence the landscape are the

 

inspiration behind this exhibition. Air, water and earth in their

 

different forms, combined with light and the impact of weather can

 

be portrayed in many different ways and will evoke varying moods

 

and emotions depending on how we identify to the subject matter…

 

 

We hope this exhibition excites you!
