Flower studies by Lynne Cartlidge focusing on the much loved, old fashioned English Rose.


Lynne Cartlidge returns to Axle Arts with a collection of flower studies, focusing on the widely loved and admired old fashioned English rose. Cartlidge works predominantly with a restricted palette, layering soft colour in endless shades of white. Her painterly studies are gently abstracted, her sensitive and broken line revealing influences from Chinese brush paintings and calligraphy.  Form is deceptively strong in her work with geometric shapes introduced into her composition in the form of tables, windows and blocks of light. A metaphor for time, these repeating shapes offer us the comfort of rhythm, pattern and predictability. Organic matter, by contrast, sits centre stage, reminding us of our fragile human existence and the elusiveness of our mortality. Cartlidge’s paintings are widely collected and form part of many private collections, including celebrity designer Sophie Conran.
