From the monumental geography of landscapes to the interwoven detail, nature is in a state of perpetual change in Lyn Melville-James’ paintings.  Lines, patterns and slabs of colour give emotional force to these works, which go beyond describing landscape to describing “a never ending orchestration of life force”.  A powerful show which includes graphite drawings, lino cuts, etchings and pastels.
