My wallpapers and soft furnishings/fashion fabrics (art collaborations with Robin Sprong, Sarza Store, Fabric Bank and Photoganic), are inspiring additions to my passion for painting…this is “Eventide”, available through Robin Sprong as a wallpaper…..
The Lin Barrie wallpaper range strangely melds with my favourite animal subjects, those lean, charismatic and oh-so-elegant African wild dogs that I am lucky to live with!
Here is “Painted Purple”, a diptych of Wild dogs, (AKA Painted Wolves or Painted Dogs, call them what you will, all the same glorious Lycaon pictus…….!)
and this is “Soft Silt”- one of my wallpapers….
and WOW! just look at the synergy and energy created when they hang together…!
I guess you could say my style is abstract/impressionistic, whether dealing with landscapes or the natural animal world… all one big ecosystem as far as I am concerned…
Here is “Eventide” wallpaper, simulated with a wild dog painting of mine, “Pep Rally II”, acrylic on loose canvas, 106 x 180 cm …..
on a brighter note…my “New Dawn” diptych…
which abstract wallpaper lives beautifully with …….
Phoenix reclinata, acrylic on loose canvas, 145 x 86 cm, is one of the many indigenous palms I love painting,
and look how it lives happily with “Eventide” wallpaper…
“Making Marks” is what I love best, gestural and expressive marks on canvas or walls, or fabric….. on anything in fact!
here is “Autumn”, a wallpaper I created with Robin Sprong,
Sarza Store’s gorgeous Gold Bottom Pot, with Lin Barrie wild dog art and “autumn” wallpaper…..
and translated into a great fabric by Fabric Bank…
and the elemental chairs by Haldane Martin, using this fabric…
