Art across Indiana
Indiana Arts, Connecting you to a world of art
Medsker, Lynne
Mixed media artist, photographer, digital artist (View Portfolio) Martinsville, IN 46151
Layering traditional art media with materials such as concrete, wood, metal and even repurposed objects, I tell visual stories featuring organic and geometric shapes. These layers are manipulated with my bare hands or simple tools as I connect to the primal urges of creativity. Viewers, drawn to my work by the texture, color and details, will also discover things hidden within the layers. I delight in the moment when those details reveal themselves to others, sparking inspiration, stirring emotions or provoking thought.
My journey into the field of art & photography is founded on a lifelong interest & enjoyment of the subject. Attending a variety of photography classes in the late 1990’s, along with self-directed study and countless hours of practice and experimentation only served to heighten my interest. I began experimenting with alternate films/processes, hand-painting photos, Polaroid transfers & emulsion lifts and finally digitally enhancing/altering photos. At the same time I launched my home-based portrait studio where I continue to enjoy infusing the images with an artistic style. Springing from photo manipulation my pursuit and passion for digital art has blossomed. While hand-coloring photos I discovered a love for working with paints and paper. As a contrast to digital art I thoroughly enjoy the sensory, "hands on" experience of physically assembling pieces of art! My work has been displayed at a mixture of solo and group gallery exhibits and I have participated in numerous local, national and international competitions, art shows, and fairs. I was awarded grants from the Indiana Arts Commission in 2003, to explore Polaroid Art, and in 2005 for digital art. In 2006 I won the first place prize for professional, creative and experimental photography at the Indiana State Fair and in 2010 for professional portrait photography. Along with my interest in photographic and digital art, painting and creating mixed media pieces I enjoy collaboratively designing welded metal artwork with my husband, Mark.
