My constructed paintings are built up of layers of paper, canvas, glass, all manner of paints, gold leaf, found objects, and others materials that I can no longer recall. Some layers conceal and others reveal but in the end each work is a whole world -- a portrait of "all there is, seen and unseen"
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lynne McIlvride has been an artist since she was 4 years old but was exposed to other artists while getting a simple BFA from York University sometime in the 80’s.
Lynne has lived in the Uxbridge area for over 40 years and has been on the tour from the second year of its existence when studio tours were an unusual and curious thing.
"My art has always been expressive, autobiographical, direct, symbolic"". Lynne uses whatever media are around in whatever combination seems right. Art-making has been a way of processing her surroundings, world events, personal disasters; a way of expressing strong emotion and her faith with a deliberate directness that is sometimes raw and constantly changing. "Stick with me: I promise not to disappoint you".
Lynne is inspired by travel, worship and of course, colour.
