Desert Hideaway is an original painting by Karen Lynn. This is a painting from Karen Lynn’s architectural series of paintings. The subject matter of the painting is in keeping with the style of David Hockney.
My fascination for tropical colours,houses and fauna are all shown here. A beautiful modernist house against a Californian mountain with tall palm trees transport us to sun and warmth. A red door against the turquoise sky finishes off the painting happily.
Karen Lynn is an increasingly collectable figurative artist whose work is inspired by the glamour and appeal of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s; an era that Christian Dior described as the ‘Golden Age’ of fashion. Stylistically, Lynn’s work has been compared to Hopper and Hockney. Initially training as a fashion designer, Lynn worked as a costumier for the English National Opera before successfully switching into set design, working for many years on a number of iconic feature films, before moving into television and commercials. In 2001, Lynn turned her attentions to painting in oils. Her wide experience of designing for film, television and theatre provides her with a unique and contemporary viewpoint; not surprisingly, her work has been snapped up by collectors both here and in the US. Lynn’s detailed drawing is complemented by the use of bold strokes, often consisting of colourful and varied characters.
