• Lyn Raymer Drawings


Lyn Raymer's charcoal drawings will show in two series at Exhibit B. Strong images are carefully observed; "I work from the gesture to the squint! Only after big broad marks are laid down and the drawing begins to 'settle in' do I get lost in the detail". The drawings at Exhibit B are two distinct exhibits. Crowds in Transit' will be on display 26 July until 6 August. A quick changeover to a strong narrative of 'Bombs and Beads' follows until 22 August.

Lyn Raymer studied fine arts in the 70's. She taught International Baccalaureate visual arts in Hong Kong, and later conducted drawing workshops in HK and Dubai. After 22 years of teaching, practicing art, and managing her own studio and an art gallery in HK, this expat is now based in Bendigo where, in the last two and a half years, she has been a finalist in more than a dozen National prizes Last year, she was delighted to show in the Rick Amor Drawing Award, one of five national Prizes in 2021, in which she was a finalist. This year she has exhibited as a finalist again in the Muswellbrook Art Prize, Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize, and the Omnia Art Prize. Drawing is Lyn's chosen art form; the sketch, the gesture and the long sustained drawing have a rightness. "I've become very interested in drawing. Drawings are without guile, without ego." This love of drawing came late, but is solid.
