"Painting for me is very physical and I endeavour to exploit it fully."
— DEBORAH LANYON
Deborah Lanyon lives in South London and studied at St Martin's College of Art and Byam Shaw College of Art. Obsessed with painting from an early age, Lanyon believes in the importance of drawing and compositional techniques, which are a strong feature of her work. Working in quick drying acrylic, Lanyon works rapidly and physically with canvases positioned on the floor.
Her paintings are a reflection of her personality. Physical but effortless; Dynamic and soft; Rhythm, Space and Time - meeting all in one place and finding their own identity.
The most recent painting to be shown at the Coningsby Gallery are mostly abstract expressionist works. They are inspired by the landscape but describe the essence of the place rather than a literal transcription. They are moments in time.
