Lynne Roberts-Goodwin is an Australian-based artist whose work engages photographic imagery, sculptural objects & video, interrogating contexts and topographies of cultural and environmental tension. Roberts-Goodwin has exhibited extensively, and her work is held in private and public collections. The recipient of national and international grants, awards & commissions, the artist’s work is held in prestigious private and public collections and was awarded the 2017 Inaugural Mordant Family/Australia Council Affiliated Fellowship and Studio Residency at the American Academy in Rome.
The artist's photographic/video and installation practice evidences concepts centered on the foundations of extreme topographical and aerial landscape as a record, document, contemporary archive and aftermath of human values and actions imposed and impacted over time, both culturally and politically. Work and research surrounding these concepts are primarily photographic and moving imagery drawn from topographical landscapes that appear as estranged within locations, through histories of contested sites or elevated/aerial topographical territories. Artistic practice over 35 years has actively sought to confront representations, both human and animal, of environmental conflict and sites of impact, aerially and at distance.
