Lin’s Artist Statement

Lynne Matthias Canary Birds Exhibition

I am a Multi-Media Artivist looking at the world through a feminist contemporary discourse.

My background in counselling, psychology, the love of people and a search for equality between gender motivates and drives me. I embrace the work of women who have been lost in the channels of time to enable a balance in our art and our history books.

My research into the art of those who have questioned the status quo are constant references. I believe that art has a huge role to play in society to provoke and encourage social change.

I have discovered a skill in motivating and encouraging people to participate in social awareness ‘happenings’, that challenge deeper meanings about the society we live in. Relational Aesthetics has enabled me to do this.
