Speckled Wood Art

Lin Osborn

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.

Lin Osborn has exhibited in many galleries throughout the UK. and overseas, and recently profiled by BBC1 South Today. She has donated 3 pieces of work to the "Rainbow Trust" charity and has raised over £4000.00 for the support of terminaly ill children and thier families.
