Paintings are so very often as much about paint itself as they are about subject or source; a reality not universally understood. It can speak as eloquently as word or melody when exploited with intelligence and dexterity. Hambleton has this understanding in her very DNA.
Lindsey has painted from a very young age – the themes of trees and water appearing in her work from these early days. Working mainly on wood panel, recent paintings are often large in scale, with compositions inspired by well known places. The strong structural elements are often framed by trees, and balanced by light and open space. The colour palette and bold brushwork are an emotive response to landscape, creating works that are confident and full of energy.
