Emotion flows into artist's work By PIERS FULLER Abstract artist: Lynn Lister's new exhibition of expressionist work shows remarkable breadth and emotional depth. Masterton artist Lynn Lister is not afraid to let go of special things -- both literally and figuratively. With her newly opened show at the Masterton Art Club her body of work displays a remarkable honesty and breadth of style. She is primarily an abstract artist who creates by direct- ly tapping into her emotional re- serves of feelings and memories. In this collection, which spans more than three decades, she reveals im- portant aspects of her past and she is willing to let nearly all of it go -- it's for sale. This not a cathartic clearing out of the past, but just a willingness to share herself in her work. A deep sense of foreboding is evi- dent in the swirling brush strokes in a painting of her early childhood home nestled under Maratoto rocks. The dark clouds represent an ima- gined threat of Japanese invasion and the flowing style evokes the dis- concerting helplessness of Edvard Munch's masterpiece The Scream. Lister's landscapes in this collec- tion are fluid and beautiful but all quite different. A painting of her and her sister in childhood has resonance of Renoir's ballet dancers with its impressionist blue hues and interesting angle. There are paintings that borrow from the colour palette and style of Chinese landscapes while others show enthusiastic messiness'' which reminds the artist herself of the broad strokes of Toss Wolliston. Lynn says she lets emotion flow out of her work and steers away from realism, which is in contrast to many of her contemporaries in the Master- ton Art Club. To me the best has an emotional impact. It is not decoration, but can shock, frighten or anger, as well as delight. However naive or crude the work, I see it as more than a beauti- ful copy which tells me nothing,'' she says. An Exhibition of Expressionist Paintings by Lynn Lister' is on at the Masterton Art Club in Victoria St until the end of March, 10am-4pm daily.
