Lynda Hyde – Blue Mountains Artist – Works on Paper

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 which was explored through painting. From 1978 to 1983 I exhibited at SMAC Gallery in Croydon.

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. I also freelanced for many other performing artists and companies.

As a Printmaker I have explored the “Reduction Process,” whereby one plate (piece of lino) is cut and then printed. This is then repeated, both cutting and printing several times, building up the colours and textures of the final image. This process is also sometimes known as “suicide prints” as a single mistake later in the process can ruin the entire run! This process does allow some experimentation with colour combinations in the later stages and results in some images coming in multiple editions from the same plate. I am currently producing Limited Edition Minimalist Block Prints in a Modernist style

My paintings are currently larger 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 bemuse, they also reflect my career in magic and illusion.”
