LYN BARNES LATEST WORKS: PLACE OF ORIGIN

In her thirty-year career as a professional artist, Lyn has not painted the historic buildings and productive landscapes of her childhood home and now feels it is time to document the area where her family has lived for generations.

“The challenge is to change from the intense colours of the Channel Country landscape to the more subtle palette of the farming country and to transform vegetation from mulga and gidgee to myall, box and bottle trees”, Ms Barnes said.

“Paddocks of wheat, cattle grazing on green oats are all distant memories and I am thoroughly enjoying reconstructing the images of home”.

Each year during the Brisbane Ekka, Lyn’s work provides a visual voice for the people of the outback and connects art lovers from Queensland’s south east with the lives of those who live beyond the Great Dividing Range.
