Peanut Slab

Nothing like finding a cheeky peanut slab someone forgot in the pantry, and the adrenaline filled neck-turn to see if anyone notices as you rip the packet open.

This is the feeling you will be giving me - knowing that you are contributing to support an ongoing artist’s career.

Access to first peeks at paintings and content I develop consistently but sporadically over the year. I will try and entertain you.

Heads up and invites to all the exhibitions I am involved with.

Flat White & a Portuguese Tart

This is the equivalent of making sure I get a really good coffee at least once a month with a delicious flakey tart from my local deli! The sweet sweet delight of those creamy tarts with a morning caffeine fix is similar to the magic feeling of a quality signed print turning up at your door unexpectedly.

Sign up at this tier, stick around for at least three months and I will send you a signed limited edition fine art inkjet print of 'The Hanging Tree' when you least expect it. But actually this tier pretty much helps me to sustain my practice by contributing to painting supplies, brushes, canvases, paint and the like.

Pretty decent bottle of wine

Thank you thank you thank you! I truly believe if you spend twenty bucks on a bottle of wine, it’s going to be pretty good value, which is what I think this tier offers. (I'm looking at you, Central Otago!)

Sign up at this tier, and I will send you a 10”x 8” (more or less) original painting once a year if you are still my patron. (Most likely a quail, budgie or goldfish - but whatever it is, it will be a SURPRISE what it is and when you get it)

You’ll also receive my undying gratitude, and the knowledge that you support an emerging artist’s career will give you some really good karma :)

About Lynette Fisher Art

Kia ora koutou katoa,

I am a New Zealand woman artist. My art practice ranges from printmaking, drawing, assemblage and painting, all of which have featured in solo and group shows around New Zealand. My work is held in public and private collections.

Get this! I left my job to become an artist  - it was (is) a big scary move, and one I have to take seriously. When you are full time at this you have to hustle ( I have become to start hating that word!). I knew it would be hard and time consuming, and when you realise it takes up 70-80% of your studio time, reality hits!

This is why I have chosen to use this format as a platform to work within . A structure that allows people to support you while you work, where their money ends up as a tangible product (YES this means you get my ART! WOO! ). You will be supporting an artist's ongoing career, with the added benefit of purchasing work via time payment...! Win Win!

No more "aging" impulse-bought artworks in the car, no more regret at not being able to afford that piece you just can't live without...we've all been there!

I hope I am offering something that you find will be great value, and I will be absolutely honored by your support should you choose to become a patron. I want my paintings in your life!

Aroha nui,  Lynette

Serious art speak begins now, be warned...

I work in the space between drawing and painting, dry-brush and wax pencil works on canvas evoking memories of blackboards or schoolhouse slates. A mostly monochrome palette is indicative of my style - where I use colour, it is subtle and sparse.

My recurrent themes investigate our innate humaness - I appropriate existing imagery and re-place it in awkward, misplaced and re-imagined worlds. There is an underlying sense of nostalgia and tension between past and present where space, time and identity are separated.

This unpacks ideas of adoption, appropriation and ownership and the taking from one culture and wedging it into another, choosing to adopt or appropriate another culture without thought, 

Specific imagery is sought out and reinterpreted from many sources - social media, personal photographs, and intentionally lifted from well known historical photographic collections.
A pose, a person, a scene, a narrative is taken and re-contextualized,
re-homed,
adopted.
The questions surrounding the very act of appropriation are posed.
Do we ask permission?
Is it ours for the taking?
Where are the lines drawn?
