Originally a figurative artist before embarking on her Fine Art Masters Degree, Lynnette Gladding has spent the past two years embracing a transition to abstract art.
Engaged with the colour juxtapositions of nature, Lynnette styles lyrical gestural marks which are a visceral response to her experience and passion for all forms of dance. She generates a visual language of movement exploiting traditional and untraditional implements in a playful yet experimental manner. Exploring dance by employing paint and other mediums, she reconnects with the feelings of strength, control and freedom, as she glides her brush, dabs the sponge or floats around with a squeegee across the paper.
Lynnette is eager to share these feelings, using her work to promote the link between dance and art to a broad audience.
She is an associate member of the International Dance Teachers Association and The Laban Guild.
