“It is not even the spirit of the place that is the true subject of my works: it is the dialogue between the figurative elements and the abstraction of much that surrounds them – the competing claims of the ‘realistic’ motif (tree, house) and the flat surface of the painting – as well as the tension between spontaneous and accidental effects and the order which ultimately contains them”.

Lydia Bauman is Polish by birth and now lives and works as an artist and art historian in London. Had it not been for the loss of her native country and language at the age of 12, she may never have become a painter of depopulated landscapes. Deeply moved by the fragility of the environment, Lydia’s paintings harness what is still beautiful and timeless about our surroundings, excluding as much as possible any traces of human intervention.

Her unique mixed media technique, developed since her student days at the Fine Art Dept of Newcastle University, is one that offers an equivalent to the spirit of particular places – be they cultivated fields of Great Britain, or the wilderness of Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, Israel or New Mexico, all of which subjects of extensive bodies of work and solo exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Her materials, organic and natural, be they plaster, resin, beeswax, sand, or gold leaf, convey some of the materiality of nature more effectively than oil or acrylics on canvas.

Lydia’s practice is complemented by her role as lecturer in art history (she has an MA from the Courtauld Institute of Art and lectures mainly at the National Gallery, the Arts Society and a number of travel companies). Her most recent painting project took her to New Mexico in the footsteps of Georgia O’Keeffe, culminating in a large solo show at the Mall Galleries in London.

    SEEING FOREST: SINGAPORE PAVILION AT…

    Art | May 17, 2024

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
