About Lynsey Ewan
There are no upcoming events
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read about my work. Most of the time, I create oil paintings from garden and woodland details, inspired by the cycles of nature and the colours each season produces. The effects of sunlight on plants, which create unusual patterns, glowing edges and wonderful contrasts, fascinate me and provide me with the photographic imagery from which I paint.There is a recurring theme of healthcare in my practice, including work in various hospital collection (see Art UK's website for example), being accepted for MSc Art Psychotherapy (then subsequently changing my mind!), and the ongoing interest in 'bigger picture' spirituality concepts.
As I paint, I often listen to mantra music or spiritual discourses that help me to focus the mind, consider the symbolism of the colour or form that I'm painting, and in general gain an understanding of how things are in my life. To have a sense of there being 'more to life than meets the eye' I think helps lift people out of their worries and problems, and that is what this thing of 'spirituality' is for me. In my artwork, I hope to instill that sense of oneness with nature and each other, that we are all connected - energetically, spiritually... whatever you want to call it.
