Lynne Arnold – About the Artist…and stuff
A Contribution from Lynne Arnold
Visual Artist and Fine Art Photographer born in Zimbabwe.
Bit Of Background
I have had a fascination with art and trying to capture what I see for as long as I can remember. Extrinsic to this is a love of “all things Africa”. One of my first loves as a child was trying to sketch rural village scenes and local rural people. A fondness that remains with me until this day.
Experimenting with different styles of art medium has always kept art fresh and exciting. Photography eventually became a major part of the medium I love to use.
My inspiration can come from just about anything…. beautiful light, texture, colour, a moment …
The Victoria Falls Collection
“The aspects that impacted on me as an artist were the strong contrasts. The dark faces of the gorges. The plummeting whitewater. The black shadows. The blinding gleam of the spray. The bleached sky and silhouetted bush skyline.”
It is impossible not to be inspired by Victoria Falls. In this collection I wanted to produce a classic series of art that reflected the essence of the early explorers and alluded to the history of Victoria Falls and the community that developed around it.
The artwork in fine art prints and originals are available both locally and internationally.
