Lynette ten Krooden
Lynette is an academic and world-class traveler with her footprints over the patterned lava rocks of South Africa; from Petra (Jordan) to Timbuktu, the Sahara desert to the Fiji Islands. All these attempts reveal her awareness of time as an agent of change, information and the fragileness of mankind.
Her gold-leaf layered canvasses reveal an expectant stillness, promoting dreams and spiritual flights of imagination.
She has developed a unique technique with handmade papers and her rich textures tell of rippling on ancient sand and stone.
She has held 37 solo-exhibitions and participated in various group shows both locally and internationally. Her very successful 60th birthday solo exhibition (The Golden years) was celebrated in Dubai with the gallery representing her work internationally.
Her work is represented in numerous corporate and private collections of which the Ellerman House and Schlumberger International are the latest.. Her commissions stretch from the Fiji Islands to the Golf Estates of the Middle East.
Lynette ten Krooden is a fulltime artist with B.A. Fine arts credentials from the Univ. of Pretoria, South Africa. She was a guest lecturer at the University of Pretoria and was for 13 years at the Tshwane University of Technology. Her workshops during Art week in Dubai are always very well attended.
She lives and works mostly in South Africa .
