Lynda M Roberts

Self Portrait of the Artist

Lynda Roberts was born in Liverpool, but
moved to Manchester when she was eight, living in Cheetham Hill,
(Hightown) as it was then called. She now resides in Prestwich,
where she has lived for the past 30 years. She attended Bolton
Institute as a mature student, completing 2 years Foundation
work and is now in the final year of her Visual Arts BA Hons
degree. Although her work was mainly representational, there
has been a gradual shift over the years towards abstraction.

“My work has always been spontaneous
and gestural. Investigation into abstraction, I feel has freed
my work even more.”

In between her course work, which includes
a dissertation about German Myth, she is presently engaged in
the promotion of her website, which shows a personal project
that she completed last year, and is continuing to resolve in
her final year.

“The ‘Echostains’
concept explores the realms of communication and code, by
use of colour and spatial relationships. I have progressed
this to include historical references, where I explore the
use of colour to suggest these, (any figurative images are
purely incidental). The main objective is communication, how
we perceive and ‘read these ‘codes’. From the
stain on Leonardo’s wall to the magical code of the Fibonacci
numbers, String Theory, (Which I’m working on at the
moment, not on my site yet).”

Lynda’s work investigates the idea of
the artist as a magician and attempts to communicate on a metaphysical
plain through subconscious use of colour and form.

“The ‘stain’ is the form,
and the ‘echo’ is the communication between the artist
and the viewer – an exchange.”
