Lynda Cookson Biography and Works - Ross's Auctioneers & Valuers

 

"South African-born Irish artist, Lynda Cookson, began her professional career as an artist in 1994. She paints in both watercolour and oils, preferring to use a palette knife rather than a brush, to capture energy.

 

Her painting style developed from her fascination with energy, texture and colour, and her paintings continue to express a strong sense of vitality. She aims to “catch the breeze” and capture the living energy in her subjects, believing that nothing is really that clear cut, smooth or perfectly still in life. Everything has a bit of a fuzzy edge and is affected by even the slightest movement of air.

 

As a creative painter, using subjective inspiration is merely a starting point for the painting to develop, and she often chooses to use pure, unmixed colour, letting it work its magic by sitting side by side with, or on top of, another colour."
