My fascination with clouds and their formed formlessness stems from the knowledge that every water droplet within them has been around throughout history and in a sense a cloud is a part of all of us.
With my paintings, I aim to create atmosphere rather than realism, revealing the seen and the ‘unseen.
With high standards of production, Lyra creates her ‘scapes’ by taking inspiration from seeing the extra-ordinary in the seemingly everyday or ordinary and from being free enough in spirit to allow each work to build through a cycle of evolution. She creates abstract but instinctively balanced compositions, sensitive to the gradations of tone using unique techniques she has developed through the open and experimental approach to her practice.
Paintings are built up in layers using a unique non-brush technique on fine linen/cotton canvas on premium grade stretchers.
