Open the Window to Fresh Ideas: Lynne Anderson

May 1 @ 8:00 am - May 31 @ 5:00 pm

Arts of the Pamlico presents Open the Window to Fresh Ideas: artwork by Lynne Anderson.

Lynne began as a fiber artist.   She studied the patterns developed by early American Pioneers on their four harness looms.  With very fine threads they were able to design very complicated patterns.  Their weaving was further enhanced with new dyes as they moved across America.  Lynne’s work has evolved to paper and watercolor paints.  Rarely does she have a specific painting, design or even a concept when beginning a painting.   Each painting evolves, sometimes completed in one day – but most often she works on several paintings, picking them up, putting them away, getting them out again, and again.  Some may seem easily identifiable representations.  Some may appear less obvious.  Looking closely at her work you may see the influence of the warp and weft, repetitiveness, color movement found in weaving.  You may also see simple images with less structure and more color. The colors, shapes and patterns evolve to become inspirations.

Lynne was fortunate to be raised as an “Army Brat” moving around the world.  She has lived in Japan, Germany, and France and twelve different states and visited all 50 states.  She has fun telling friends about her high school proms on the Eiffel Tower and on the River Seine.  She married an Army man and continued her travels.  Her travel experiences also influence her painting.  Botswana, Belize, Singapore, Cambodia, Japan, Viet Nam, Europe, Iceland, New Zealand and the Caribbean can be seen in many other paintings.  Lynne and her husband, Andy, retired from government service and live in the wonderful city of Washington, NC.  Her stated objective when retiring was to do whatever she wants whenever she wants.  Painting and studying works of other artists is how she spends her time.
