Lynda Kingsley, Water Media Artist
Throughout most of my artistic career I have explored the beauty of nature’s elements. I am constantly seeking the outdoors, examining the minuscule acorn and the aged oak that produced it, the buds on a Magnolia tree and the seed pods it drops to the ground.
I love the effect of decaying rust against the freshness and beauty of nature. The diversity of form, pattern and color are all around us in nature and repeated in our own lives. Artists have long explored the world around them, the beauty and the decay, the hospitality and the hostility of nature. My intent as an artist is to marry organic life with corrosion and dilapidation in such a way that accentuates the beauty of each, blurring the lines between beauty and decay, life and death and the organic and the man made.
