Lynda Hyde – Blue Mountains Artist 

Based in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney Australia, I’ve had a career in the Arts for 40 years, as an artist, set and costume designer and as a performer in Contemporary Dance, Magic and Mime.

On leaving school I trained in drafting and worked for a time in the Australia Square offices of Australia’s foremost modernist architect Harry Seidler. This led to a fascination with the geometric form and modernism which I explored through painting, dance and graphic design.

I studied Relief Printing in the late 80’s at Waverley-Woollahra Arts School and in 2011 completed CIV Fine Arts and in 2012 Master Printmaking both at WSI NADC.

I worked with my husband Timothy for many years in our entertainment company Achieving the Impossible, travelling and performing Magic and Illusion Shows extensively in Australia and abroad. As well as performing, I was responsible for costume, prop and set design as well as using my design skills in publicity and promotional material. Highlights included performing as the opening act for entertainment legends – James Taylor, Whoopie Goldberg and Shirley MacLaine.

As a Printmaker I spent many years exploring the “Reduction Process,” also known as “suicide prints.”  I am currently producing Limited Edition Minimalist Block Prints in a Modernist style

My larger paintings are currently Geometric Abstractions in acrylic. These explore the Perception of Movement, Shifting Planes and Points of Focus.
There is an intersection between Op Art, Hard-edge Geometric Abstraction and Colour Field painting that I love, and my larger works reflect this.

“I use traditional techniques and equipment from my background in drafting to create hard edged geometric paintings that explore tricks of the eye. Designed to both amuse and intrigue, they also reflect my long career performing magic and illusion.”
