Vivid Colour 4 is a contemporary painting from Karen Lynn’s Crowd series of works. I am fascinated by people and in this painting I am allowed to invent and dress a varied audience. I wanted to paint what I call a chorus of people like how a designer might dress the chorus of an opera. In this painting no one should stand out more than another. The painting becomes a pattern of people with their retro costumes on as spectators themselves listening or watching an event themselves

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.
