Karyn Fendley is a contemporary landscape artist based in Byron Bay Australia, who works with acrylic and mixed media on canvas.
Her paintings explore the underlying structure of natural forms and the connection between landscape, memory and the subconscious.
Sumptuous, dramatic colour combinations and flattened perspectives are a hallmark of her painting practice.
Her recent artworks explore various locations in Northern NSW and South East Queensland, including the coastal heathlands and coastal landscapes of Arakwal, Bundjalung and Yuraygir National Parks in northern NSW, and the ancient time-weathered granite landscapes of Bald Rock and Girraween National Parks near Tenterfield.
