Artist Spotlight – PHOAP 2017
Lyn Guy – Finalist
Standley Chasm NT - Textile
After retiring from a forty plus year career in Education, Lyn Guy was able to pursue her creative side and enrol in a Diploma of Arts Studio Stitch/Textiles course. Since graduating, Lyn has continued to exhibit works in numerous exhibition both juried and with fellow artists, along with holding her own solo shows.
Lyn’s works always focus on an in depth representation of things around her. They incorporate images of nature and recent travels. Her latest series of work is based on her travels through the outback.
“I am endeavouring to portray it’s richness, remoteness, diversity and most of all it’s vibrancy of colour.” As with all Artists, there is always a time line of progress. Free machine embroidery played a dominant part in her earlier works. Most recently, using self-dyed silks and threads to achieve a unique palette of colours, her images are created by collaging together tiny pieces of silk. These are then held in place by a system of fluid stitching and further enhanced with free machine embroidery.
Don’t forget to visit the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery and place your vote for the “People’s Choice Award”. The winning Artist will be awarded $500.
Voting is open for the duration of the exhibition - 30th June – 13th August.
