‘Left’ is an original acrylic on linen work by Lynette Fisher as part of her ‘Whisper Whisper’ series.

“Through this body of work I have constructed my own visual language. The seemingly unrelated elements of a time-honored coding system converging with a child’s game of ‘Whispers’ and the nostalgia of a daisy chain, challenge our perceptions of how we convey meaning and emotion in the digital age.

By deconstructing and reinterpreting the language of flowers into dots and dashes, I seek to explore the intersection of nature and technology. In a world where instant messaging and emojis dominate, I invite viewers to slow down and reflect on the significance of subtle gestures and symbolism. I hope to encourage a deeper understanding of the evolving modes of communication while preserving the charm of traditional imagery in a contemporary context.”

Year: 2023

Dimensions: 420mm x 320mm (work can be hung either direction) x 50mm (d)

Medium: Acrylic on linen with tray frame

Quirky Fox: Art + Framing

Lynette Fisher’s art practice encompasses painting, printmaking, drawing and assemblage, which she regularly exhibits in solo and group shows throughout New Zealand.

Lynette’s work investigates themes of adoption, guardianship and ownership - appropriating existing imagery and re-placing it in awkward and re-imagined worlds. While an underlying sense of nostalgia usually permeates her work, it is disrupted by tensions around how the past and the present traverse space, time and identity.

Lynette graduated from Toi Ohomai in 2017 with a Bachelor of Creative Industries, and since 2022 has been the coordinator of the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award. Her work is held in public and private collections. Lynette was born in Auckland and now lives and works in Te Puna, Tauranga.
