“Lynette is an extraordinary painter and a true visionary. Her work is both lyrical and intensely grounded. Her paintings take the viewer into a new experience of landscape, full of discovery and innovation. She is, through painting, like a spirit guide who leads us, with thoughtful exuberance, into familiar and unfamiliar territories and experiences.“
-Gwynneth VanLaven, Multi-Disciplinary Artist, Teacher
Lance Esplund, art critic for Modern Painters, Art in America wrote:
“Lombard’s collisions of color convey the activity and immediacy of the artist’s eye as it darts from motif to palette to canvas in an attempt to rein in everything before the light changes. Our senses are heightened…”
“Very hot colour range and a richly artistic touch …”
-Tony Rothon, Studio Art International
7 on Site is an exhibition of contemporary landscape paintings. It is a collection of the work of seven, mid-career American artists who work on site, plein air. The artwork collected for this exhibit was painted in the US and Europe.
The interpretations of the landscapes presented are unique to each artist, yet all have an understanding of cubist/modernist space, light and color. 7 on Site use this understanding not to repeat the past, but as a touch point for working in the present.
These seven artists choose to be out in the world, in nature, responding to it and interpreting it. They employ a slow and ancient way of seeing in our fast-paced, modern world. The beauty and contemplation that is evident in this work is an echo and distillation of what is always within our view. In this exhibition the viewer is asked not only to look, but to see.
