Lynne Cartlidge creates gentle compositional studies of objects found in the everyday: a vase of flowers, a teacup, the familiar settings of a table, where each positioning of an apparently ordinary item takes centre stage as resonant balanced elements, played out as a musician might arrange notes on a scale. Her work as a colourist is evident. A table cloth provides the platform of the palette as do the particular flowers appearing in the display, and the arrangement of these elements in relation to the particular light cast by the environment, the most recent being St. Ives, change the palette of shadows cast across the cloth by the objects.
