Soft Dreams by Lynne Holland Weiss

A sneak preview of one of LAB 18’s features. Vibrant, colorful work from Lynne Holland Weiss.

You can find a fantastic interview with Lynne over on Juxtapoz. From this interview:

My paintings are narrative in nature, but rather then explicitly tell or present a story or a scenario, I very intentionally leave the narrative and scenes incredibly open-ended. The who, when, where is completely for the viewer to decide, but the ability to provoke the sensitive body and an empathetic response is what I am after. That being said, some common threads in my work are feelings such as desire, longing, waiting, pondering mysteries and the unknown, physicality and human touch, time lapsing and movement, and the individual versus the collective. In general, I’d say the figures I paint often are deep in thought themselves, and in this way, act as mirror for the viewers own contemplation.
