Lynette Fisher’s dark emotional work describes childhood scenes with concepts investigating the hierarchies and societal behaviours constructed on the playground. A fine balance between drawing and painting, the dry brush and wax pencil works on canvas use colour sparingly, evoking fragments of memory and dreams. With an underlying sense of nostalgia, Lynette also cites contemporary themes of adoption, ownership, guardianship and appropriation. The narratives in the work investigate a questioning lens on modern society.
