Lydia Bauman Artist

Looking for Georgia

In September 2017 Lydia travelled to New Mexico to see for herself the places painted by Georgia O'Keeffe to gain a better understanding of the nature of her achievement as one of the most celebrated American painters of the 20th century. The experience of the awe-inspiring desert provided Lydia with a wealth of material from which she has created a series of paintings, experimenting with new techniques and adding to her arsenal of painting materials (plaster, resin, wax, texture gels, Japanese papers, embossing powders, dust and sand to name but a few!)

The culmination of the work will be an exhibition Looking for Georgia  in the Mall Galleries London W1 from 24th February to 2nd March 2019. This will be a MUST SEE exhibition so please put the dates in your diary.
