The new work of artist Norlynne Coar is exciting as it continues to evolve, bridging the representational world with the amorphous world of space. In a sense, the work is both infinite landscape and infinite space, as the work draws you in beyond the image and into experience.
Coar has a particular affinity with the ocean, earth and sky expressed in paintings, prints and photographs. Trees are often the intermediary joining heaven and earth, suggesting the infinite, circular process of creation and destruction, evolution and devolution, as day revolves into night and new life sprouts in the roots of dying trees. The art expresses the eternal, creative cycle often accented by a spiral, an infinity shape or a portal through which to enter a world of color and texture. In the paintings one sees the natural world suspended in the web of space, in fields of light, color and texture. In the photography, one sees both motion (perhaps as a woman spinning or walking with a red umbrella) and utter stillness (as in a landscape or wave frozen in time).
Stemming from Coar’s personal experiences and wide travel, the attempt to see and express things in new ways and from different perspectives is omnipresent in the work. For art lovers who crave unique, original art and sometimes a splash of whimsy, Coar creates work that adds beauty and depth to a myriad of environments from private collections to corporate headquarters and hospitality venues.
Coar’s artistic career spans decades. In addition to offering unique, original work and custom archival prints, Norlynne Coar Fine Art accepts commissions for custom work and also offers a growing collection of affordable, fine art prints on demand.
