Artist's Statement:
METAL LEAF ON MYLAR - Lynda Cole's metal leaf on mylar artwork springs from her education and experience in two rarely related design fields: landscape design and fabric design, which she pares down to essential forms - squares, circles, cubes and grids. The shimmering colors of foils in silver or palladium undergo slow oxidative change like a seasonal landscape. Her work evokes an openness and peaceful contemplation along with a feeling of focused energy. ENCAUSTIC PAINTING - I paint with encaustic wax on plexiglas or cradled wood panel. Generally, I use a pretty restricted color palette. Texture, mass, line and compostion are more important to me than color. On plexiglas I use the transparency of the plexiglas combined with transparent pigments to coax the light to play a part. The wax, with or without pigment, is brushed on. Layers of wax are burned in with a propane torch or heat gun or ironed.Digital PaintingMy intention is to create the visual impression of life using abstract forms. The forms are referencing life in motion - life from the very tiny quantum mechanical world to the very large astronomical world. I use the computer to do this. Each mark is made digitally. I start with a blank computer screen and go from there. I print my work with Ultrachrome Ink on 100% rag paper. The original, digital paintings in this series are printed in editions of 25, sized 23x23. DIGITAL PAINTING - My intention is to create the visual impression of life using abstract forms.
