Western Australian artist, Jacinda Bayne invites one to pause and connect. Her landscapes provide a window of tranquility which allow the viewer to pause and meditate. Bayne's large-scale, evocative canvases are a fusion of personal memories, moods and contemplations, be it the vision of light filtering through trees and water, suspended in time. Glazes of oil paint fall into considered areas and create pathways. The works are smooth, fluid and rich in pigment. Colour has always been an integral ingredient for conditioning the emotion in which we experience our surroundings. Stimulated by natural beauty, Bayne constantly refers to her collection of sketches, photographs and paint palettes, where infinite combinations of colours speak an internal dialogue. Seemingly accidental, runs of paint are in fact expertly controlled and purposely placed to lead the eye through the composition. The vast scale of the works is intended to allow the viewer to immerse themselves within the scene, subduing the noisiness of the outside world. Open fields of colour, smooth gradients of blues and turquoise, familiar landform silhouettes, a clearing in a forest, and calm waters all reflect the artist's world from outside and within.
