' Lyne Marshall is a painter of
buoyant semi abstract images
that are both lyrical and moodily
seductive. Her works exploit the fluid properties of acrylic paint, manipulated wet in wet to yield
fresh atmospheric effects and
over painted to create intricate

The Hidden Dimensions travelling exhibition connects my relationship with painting and writing which continues to fuel my artistic vision. The paintings exhibited are mostly found in my books on art philosophy, in particular Invisible Realities: Finding the Hidden Dimension in Art, published in 2010.
These are inner landscapes painted as a response to an experience, an emotional and spiritual encounter with something that I feel is out of the ordinary. Influenced by a lifetime connection with the land, I explore, on a deeper level, nature’s beauty and design, the cycles of life, and the elements that expose the layers of the earth through time.
My lifestyle now at Tallegalla mirrors my childhood experiences on Bribie Island. Then, as now, I have immense freedom to wander in natural places and experience the land. I paint what I see and feel, seeking to abstract the essence of the land through the medium of paint. I am searching for the answers, curious to know more about life and it’s creation.
Capturing the majesty and history of the wilderness places I walk in has become my passion. This feeds my soul and gives me purpose, along with my desire to impart something of this experience to the viewer so they can also participate in the journey.
