Artist celebrates the ordinary in new exhibition

03 February 2020

Fife artist Lyndsey Lannie celebrates the ordinary in a new exhibition at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes.

A graduate of Grays School of Art, Lyndsey specialises in fine art and for the new show she has created striking images using the everyday as a subject matter and breathed new life into them.

“A close family connection and sense of belonging is an important part of my life,” said Lyndsey, who lives and works in Dalgety Bay.

“I use the traditional method of oil on canvas to create atmospheric paintings, capturing objects that have associated meaning to myself – past and present. These objects spark a series of memories that bring comfort, familiarity and nostalgia.

“I create an ambience in my work by focusing on shadow and light. The vibrant colour brings contrast and excitement and the use of space pulls the eye toward the focal point.”

Two other artists are also showing work in the glass display cabinets in the exhibition space at Rothes Halls.

Deborah Lyon, from Stirling, creates bespoke resin jewellery while Kirsty Anderson, from Edinburgh, specialises in ceramics and stoneware.

The exhibition runs until 28 April.
