Lynne Bickhoff feels an affinity with the words of Frida Kahlo:
“I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration”.
Inspiration for Lynne rises from memories of landscapes where she has formed strong connections, in particular the places where she has lived.
Utilising her emotional response to a particular landscape, Lynne’s feelings compel and guide her artwork in an interpretive, almost abstract response. Each landscape has its own energy and evokes varied reactions; Lynne’s work drawn from living in remote outback Queensland is very different to her work inspired by her coastal home. For Lynne, the painting process is almost meditative and allows her the freedom to reflect and reignite emotions from the past.
Lynne Bickhoff enjoys working in mixed media, combining acrylic and polymer paint with inks, shellac, conte crayon, oil sticks and charcoal to create paintings with the depth of layering found in the landscapes of life.
