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 rockpools 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.
