PITTSBURGH, PA - Artist Lyn Hiner has been announced as the featured artist at the Cortile Italian Car Show at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix's 2023 event featuring Ferrari as the Marque of the Year.
Lyn is an internationally recognized palette knife painter based in Southern California. Known for portraying expectedly detailed elements through an emotionally expressive application, Lyn’s bold colors and palette knife strokes create a sense of energy on the canvas revealing a beautifully unique perspective.
Her palette knife technique is reminiscent of Impasto without quite the thickness. Rob, her husband, says that her style most closely resembles Abstract Expressionism which is defined as an Impressionist-style, but with an emphasis on varying measures of abstraction. Lyn says it's more of an emotive expressive approach.
What you will find mesmerizing about Lyn's work is how it draws you in from afar. Each piece can capture you and then you find yourself moving closer.
You are attracted to it more and more as your eyes try to translate the colors and abstract lines of each highly recognizable piece in your mind.
But the colors are bolder than what you expect as the norm, more vibrant.
It's the continuation of the idea of capturing light explored by the Impressionists, the bold use of color pioneered by Matisse and The Fauves, but dripping like a Jackson Pollock. We think you will enjoy the show inside the Clubhouse and the works on display in the Reception Tent.
LYN HINER'S PETROL COLLECTION
Launched in November 2017, Lyn’s "Petrol" collection was first debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and is now regularly featured at juried fine art shows, galleries and distinguished automo-
tive exhibitions internationally:
