But most often, as in traditional forms of painting, the meaning of an image is the meaning the viewer gives it. Ambiguity is satisfying because it calls on the viewer to engage his/her intellect and perception, and provides a unique and singular visual experience. For me, art is not about copying reality, but about providing the exhilaration of this new visual experience. I hope you enjoy looking at my work.
You might be interested to know that these images originated in my washing machine. Yes, I took pictures of our laundry-in-process, and transformed them into these images. Hopefully you will find some fascination in them, as I did in engaging my own "art of seeing."
The above images are "Seeking the Spirit" and "Celerian." Both images copyright 2008 Lynda Lehmann. All rights reserved. If you would like to see more of my art, including painting, digital art, and photography, please visit www.lyndalehmann.com
