West Australian Artist Jacinda Bayne invites us to pause and connect. Her Landscapes provide a space for the viewer to breathe and to take time to reflect upon personal experiences. These large scale, evocative canvases are a fusion of experiences, memories and thoughts – light filtering through trees and water, suspended in time.
Colour is always an integral part of the process which evokes emotion toward what we are seeing. Glazes of oil paint fall into considered areas and pathways. The work is smooth, fluid and rich in pigment. Seemingly accidental runs of paint are expertly controlled and purposely placed to lead the eye through the composition.
Jacinda has a connection with the Kimberly as Artist in residence on board the True North from Broome to Wyndham resulting in a solo exhibition ‘Where the Water Talks’. She has travelled the Gibb River road and worked in the Mowanjum Community in Derby creating Murals with the aboriginal children. With many solo and group exhibitions Jacinda returns to her collection of sketches, watercolours, photographs and paint palettes for inspiration. Her combination of colour, light and imagery trigger one’s own sense of place and experience with the land.
