12 - 27 Mar 2009 - Lin Osborn Solo Exhibition

Lin Osborn was awarded a scholarship to Harrow School of Art and went on to study at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, graduating in 2001 with a BA Hons in Fine Art. She then attended Winchester School of Art where she became increasingly interested in photography.

Osborn uses a series of small detailed photographs to create her original artworks. The subjects are typically ordinary objects taken from everyday life or the natural world and by repeating a series of images the artist is able to change the original isolated context. 'En masse' the images have a power and beauty.

By focusing on topical themes a spirit of time and place is conveyed. In 'Rainbow' for example, Osborn uses single colour formations, placing together images of trivial household objects. The importance of branding on plastic carrier bags is highlighted, introducing an aspect of commercial and social history that is fast disappearing.

In 'Sunflowers' and 'Poppies' the inspiration comes from the subtle differences between apparently identical natural objects. Other works such as 'Doors' have a historical and architectural interest.

The images comprising 'London' convey the variety and importance of the capital city as it is in 2009. Photographs of tourist paraphernalia are cleverly juxtaposed with views of iconic buildings such as Battersea Power Station.
