Lynsey is a painter working mainly in the traditional medium of oil on linen. She has a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Sydney’s, Sydney College of the Arts (2008) and is currently a Doctoral Candidate at the National Art School in Sydney. McGee has been a practicing artist since 2005 and has exhibited in group and solo shows in Berlin and Sydney.
I am interested in perception and my work hinges on the idea that paintings require a temporality of engagement which contrasts with the fleeting, screen-based images that dominate much of our daily experience. Working mainly with urban landscapes I explore atmospheric conditions that cannot be translated through simple iPhone snapshots.
