  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Angela Lyn was born in Windsor, England in 1955 to a Chinese father and an English mother. In 1968 she emigrated with her family to the USA. In 1972 she travelled to Taiwan to explore her Asian heritage, pursuing studies in Chinese language and painting at Fu-Jen University in Taipei. Later, returning to England, she studied Fine Art at Southampton College of Art and Byam Shaw, now part of Central St Martins, London. In 1978 she moved to Switzerland and attended the Master Class in painting, led by Franz Fedier at the Kunstgewerbeschule, Basel. Since 1994, Angela lives and works, in Lugano, Switzerland, the nature surrounding her studio being a major source of inspiration for her work.

Primarily a painter, Angela focuses on traditional media: oil painting, drawing and bronze sculpture, investigating their continuing resonance in a world dominated by electronic media, technology and an ever-faster production of the new.Angela has exhibited extensively throughout her career, both in Switzerland and abroad. Her works are found internationally in numerous private, corporate and museum collections.

 

"In a globalising world, where cultural diversity is ever increasing, I am interested in what touches us regardless of who we are or where we are from. My close observations of the expansive nature surrounding my studio on Lake Lugano serve as a basis through which I explore and reflect on human response, nature being the essential common denominator of us all. I consciously choose traditional media: oil painting, drawing and bronze sculpture for my practice; examining their resonance in a world dominated by technology and an ever-faster production of the new."  A. Lyn
