portfolio about the artist contact  

Lynne Arovas, a Greenwich resident, graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and minor in art from Arcadia University (formerly Beaver College) and has studied at the Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan, CT. She is a member of the Greenwich Art Society, City Lights Gallery, and Stamford Art Association. In the past she was a member of the Women’s Caucus for Art CT chapter. Lynne’s medium is mixed media/collage and she has exhibited in numerous group shows as well as some solo shows. Recently she was selected as a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine 33rd Annual Art Competition. Lynne has won both 1st and 2nd prizes for her work.

She says, “’Energy in order’ is one way I would describe my work. Arranging expressive designs of nervous energy in a contained, structured way is for me a very calming and almost meditative experience. There is satisfaction placing “chaos” in order, and excitement combining these contrasting elements into a dynamic composition. Emotions, nature, and color inspire me and are often the intertwining themes in my work. My goal for a collage is reached when I am finally content with the color harmony, pattern relation, and dimension created.

Mixed media/collage is a very forgiving medium, which is in part why I relate and enjoy the process. There is always the possibility to change--recreate. I usually begin by drawing and/or painting many designs, shapes, doodles, and written thoughts onto paper. The materials I gravitate to most are colored markers, pen, paint, pencil, crayon, colored paper, and acrylic gloss/matte medium. Once I feel I have enough designs to work with, I start on cutting the drawings (etc.) up, arranging and gluing the pieces to a paper surface then sealing with an acrylic medium. These cutting, arranging, pasting, and sealing steps continue many times over which often results in the collage having a tile like quality.”
