Peripheral Vision Exhibit – by Lynda Lehmann

“PERIPHERAL VISION,” a solo show of my abstract acrylic paintings, opens at the Alfred Van Loen Gallery at the South Huntington Library in South Huntington, NY, on February, 9, 2008, and will run through March 6. The Opening Reception is from 2:00-4:00 p.m. and the show will be curated by Deborah Katz.

STATEMENT: My paintings are energetic, active if not frenetic, and complex. I feel they reflect the complexity and mutability of personal consciousness, as well as the impermanence of what we call “objective” reality. My work exhibits order within chaos, much as we experience a certain order within all the complexity and disorder of both civilization and the natural world.
In my paintings I prefer the ambiguity, freedom and musicality of abstraction. My work is as chaotic as waves breaking on a beach or a swelling cloudscape impinging on a changing horizon. Reality is relative, not fixed. What we call “reality” does not exist in any absolute sense, but only in increments of change. I see the nuances of my subjective reality not in subtle tones, but in patches of bright, swirling color. For me the act of painting is a dance; it connects me to elemental and primordial forces underpinning my life experience. Each time you view one of my paintings, you are likely to see something different, just as in the changing paradigms of the human condition.

Thanks for sharing this with me. I’ll try to take some photos at the show and post them! Since you most likely can’t come to the show, please visit to see more of my art!

About Lynda Lehmann

I'm an abstract painter and photographer with a passion for color and the forms of nature. Even as a child, I felt awed by the wonders of nature. As an adult, I know that my love of beauty has inspired my life. My photography is realistic, but my paintings are abstract. In painting, I'm drawn to subjects of ambiguity and mystery, more than to recognizable scenes, and I love the freedom and musicality of abstract work. To me, it's more fun to see 'what isn't' than to see 'what is.' I have shown my art in numerous juried group and solo shows in the New York area. You can view my paintings, nature photography and digital art at my sites. Please visit my "Peripheral Vision" blog at to see a listing of my art sites and links to my articles and writing about creative process. I'm now selling my art on a wide of array of great Zazzle products, and you can find them at my five shops, with more to come!
