about.

Lynette Fisher

 

is a Tauranga based creative practitioner and part time academic staff member at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology, teaching on the Bach. Creative Industries degree.
Her art practice ranges from printmaking, drawing, assemblage and painting, all of which have featured in solo and group shows around New Zealand. Her work is held in public and private collections.
She works in the space between drawing and painting, dry-brush and wax pencil works on canvas evoking memories of blackboards or schoolhouse slates. A mostly monochrome palette is indicative of her style - where colour is used it is subtle and sparse.
Lynette’s recurrent themes investigate  our innate humaness - appropriating existing imagery and re-placing it in awkward, misplaced and reimagined worlds. There is an underlying sense of nostalgia and tension between past and present where space, time and identity are separated.
Lynette works from her studio in Te Puna, where works can be viewed by appointment.

 

I am what I play (2018).


The concepts in this body of work investigate the hierarchies constructed on the playground. The intricate rules connected to our childhood games are mirrored as we become ‘the grown-ups’.

“Who’s it?!" Who decides which child becomes the goody or the baddie? The small battles we entered into on the school field are repackaged back to when all we wanted was to be older - after all, the grown ups got to do all of the cool stuff, and seemed to have no rules to follow.

Little rituals (2017).

This work is part of a series that investigates the rituals surrounding play. The hierarchies, rules and intricacies constructed on the playground are unpicked and re-imagined, sometimes sitting uncomfortably alongside the learned behavior passed from our parents.

The persistence of tradition (2016).

The concepts in this body of work surround the ideologies of cultural objects and their association with memory and identity. Recognizable iconography is reinterpreted, and explores the notions of ‘handed down’ family artefacts and their continuing importance in our histories
