As a representational painter, one of the key ingredients one has to master is the behaviour and interplay of light in space. For artist Lynne-Marie Eatwell, this forms the basis of her incredibly vivid works of oil on canvas, which possess a luminous quality, almost as if they were lit from within. Hailing from Cape Town and currently based in California, her well-travelled subject matter has an intimacy and texture which is hard to find in contemporary art.
