Digital art offers us possibilities for finding new ways of seeing, not conceived of before the computer era. New realms of vision and perception, from the everyday to more unusual phenomena, open up for us. Digital painting will never replace real-time, brush-and-pigment painting, but it brings us myriad new dimensions of vision, not readily attainable by traditional means alone.
But most often, as in traditional forms of painting, the meaning of an image is the meaning the viewer gives it. Ambiguity is satisfying because it calls on the viewer to engage his/her intellect and perception, and provides a unique and singular visual experience. For me, art is not about copying reality, but about providing the exhilaration of a new visual experience.
In this gallery you can also buy prints of some of my paintings, or digital manipulations of my original paintings. If you would like to buy an original watercolor or acrylic painting on canvas from me, please visit my site at www.lyndalehmann.com, where you will find originals for sale.
My style is usually one of high color and contrast, and I love doing active and gestural work, which could be classified as abstract expressionist. Those times when I choose realism, the work tends to be quite stylized, as well. The dynamic and changeable quality of nature and natural processes, inspires my work.
