Children’s holiday art workshop coming up Tue 14th Jan 2020. See more here
I have a love for fashion and design and this can be seen in some of my latest paintings. My hope is that the viewer will be impacted by the beauty and vibrance in my paintings which represents the rich value of people. If you weren’t able to make it to my exhibition you can see it in the video below.
Thank you to everyone who came to my “Valuable” exhibition over Labour Weekend to make it such a memorable time. It was lovely to meet many new people and to have many conversations about the arts and to see past buyers coming a distance for the opening and purchasing some art from me again. I was humbled by people’s warm response and accolades. Thank you to those at The Raft for the tasty platters at the opening and encouraging cafe attendees to come into the exhibition room to see my art.
Below is what was written in my catalogue for my recent exhibition.
YOU ARE VALUABLE
I have always gravitated to drawing and painting faces. When I was bored in class at school I would sketch fellow class mates and was able to capture their likeness. The first oil painting I sold in my teenage years was a portrait. I thought I would become a portrait artist. As I carried on my art journey I enjoyed painting so many things, in different styles and mediums. I wanted to break out of that realism mould which seemed to come so easily to me. I wanted to be more creative. So I put painting faces on hold. After some time I realized I could still paint people and faces but be more adventurous in my approach.
After a 25 year art journey of painting whatever I felt like I am now focused on people, mainly women, and mostly with gold in the work. Gold speaks to me of value, and so when I use it in a work I am emphasising the person’s immense uniqueness, value, worth and importance. As we recognize our individual value we will find it easier to recognize rich value in others and the world will be a better place with people being more respected and loved.
You are valuable, you are unique. There is only one you. We give value to things in this world that are rare – such as an old master painting – so how much more valuable are you! Your value hasn’t changed because of the knocks of life or the times you feel you’ve failed, you still have the same value and the One who created you loves you just the same as when your life began.
So I am hoping in my own small way that my works will remind you of your value and the value of others and together we can make this world a better place.
I have featured in four magazines recently including articles about my life as an artist and my recent exhibition “Valuable”.
I love painting the female face and this one is different to what I’ve painted before because of the colours and the technique. It is the first of a series where the purpose is to build the self esteem of the viewer. With being available in prints this would be wonderful for teenage girls to hang in their rooms.
Tauranga artist Lynne Sinclair Taylor has been known for her vibrant use of colour over the last 25 years and her wide range of subjects, styles and mediums has always given her exhibitions an element of surprise.
Now Lynne is focusing more on using the colours and effects of gold, silver and bronze to enhance the female face and form. Together with her love of fashion and design the result is that viewers are captured by the beauty of her recent works.
