Angela Lyn: Why painting?
In times of constant visual distraction, finding meaning in images is difficult. There is little time to reflect and build a relationship with what we see. My interest in painting lies in reawakening that relationship. In today’s context, an image that one can revisit and rediscover, takes on new relevance. I use painting as a tool to re-examine how the duration of time can affect our perception of experience. Through the contemplation of nature -landscape, trees and plants, I build images slowly until they transcend representation and reach a point where time is arrested. It is here that the painting invites the viewer to engage and meaning can be created.
