Language and Commerciality

Life in a Western Town by Lynda Fynn Dickinson A recent video on the Royal Academy of Art, London’s David Remfry, Royal Academician, and his journey in art over many years was very inspiring.  In it he shares with us the view that many artists need, for commercial survival, to create something that appeals to […]

A painting called Elegy to the Spanish Republic No. 70 by Robert Motherwell

Shapes : Robert Motherwell

I was first introduced to the abstract expressionist painting of Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) after a visit to the Abstract Expressionist exhibition in Bilbao in 2017.   It is, however, Motherwell’s paintings on Elegy to the Spanish Republic, painted between 1948-1967, which interest me most. He painted over 100 paintings on the subject, and was always seeking […]

A painting called Girt by Sea by Lynda Fynn Dickinson

Shapes That Inspire

And a little closer to home, I am obsessed with perfecting the assemblage of my own shapes, which have been inspired from the environment in Western Australia. I have filled bookfuls of the shapes, and although at times I’ve questioned why they appeal, and what they mean, I don’t necessarily need to know or understand […]

Shark Bay

Shark Bay is part of a World Heritage Site in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia around 800 kilometres (500 miles) north of Perth, the state capital. With its combination of long coastlines, islands and peninsulas, it is a harsh, unforgiving and yet stunningly beautiful environment. I love the juxtaposition of raw earth, mangrove-fringed lagoons, […]
