A bit about her process.
Lynda works mainly in mixed media, cold wax and oil paint. The physical process within her practice involves building up multiple layers of cold wax medium, oil paint, and pigments, using a range of tools and mark making techniques, by repeatedly adding and subtracting layers, concealing and revealing the underpainting. This process creates a push and pull between the under-layers and new surfaces within the paintings. Through this layering process, Lynda wishes to capture nature’s cycles, of decay, growth and renewal. The wax itself is a mixture of beeswax, damar resin and solvent, as the solvent evaporates the wax hardens. Beeswax has been used in painting dating back to the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D. She likes this connection with the past being a feature in her work. .
