KRONENBERG WRIGHT ARTISTS PROJECTS, Sydney, Australia (Represented artist). closeupatadistance LYNNE ROBERTS-GOODWIN, Gallery 1 + Gallery 2. Solo exhibition, September 2016. Photographic works, metal wall installation and video installation. closeupatadistance exhibition works approach topographically remote sites which engage and reverberate continually at extreme altitude or land depths, where social, cultural and environmental forces are enacted. Lynne Roberts-Goodwin engages with and speculates upon the contradictory imagining and imaging of disappearance and impact at sites along key ancient trade routes marked by environmental and geopolitical tension. Within this key series, closeupatadistance, the work collaboratively has engaged with the Dead Sea and surrounding contested sites of environmental and political impact from aerially oblique and ground positions. It is within these contested landscapes that narratives of migration, exile and the reverberation of aftermath are revealed. A poignant stillness, close up and at a distance, of unwritten bodies and vistas. Catalogue and exhibition promotion + design: PATRICK LEONG DESIGN CO.

WITHOUT BORDERS features more than twenty-five artworks covering video installation, painting, photography and sculpture.

.M CONTEMPORARY Gallery, Sydney, Australia, Solo Exhibition MORE THAN EVER, Solo exhibition of 2012-2014 works of Lynne-Roberts Goodwin. 09 August 2014-12 Sept 2014, Opening address by Rachel Kent, Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. ‘‘MORE THAN EVER is a selection of the artist’s recent large-scale photographic works that includes images from two recent series, SWARM Think The Mountain and As The Sky Falls. Roberts-Goodwin’s images have an unadorned beauty that reminds the viewer of the simple pleasures of looking, while her subjects – bold images of mountains and vast landscapes, juxtaposed with close-ups of birds in flight – hark back to some of the oldest subjects in visual art evoking the sublime landscape and the mysteries of the natural world. That the artist can do so without the slightest trace of sentimentality make them all the stronger’.

MUSEUM of CONTEMPORARY ART, Sydney, Australia, ‘NEW ACQUISITIONS 2007’. Curator: Rachel Kent. New Acquisitions 2007 was an exhibition of works recently acquired for the Museum of Contemporary Art’s permanent collection that celebrated the material and conceptual diversity of Australian art today. Like its predecessors, New Acquisitions 2007 was not built around one thematic premise: rather, it brought together selected works that explored multiple concerns through painting, watercolour, sculpture, photography, film and video.A distinguishing feature of New Acquisitions 2007 was the global reach of its participants. While the artists featured were Australian, a number had travelled and worked abroad through artistic residencies and fellowships in the previous two years. Jess MacNeil’s works responded to time spent in India in 2005, while Lynne Roberts-Goodwin’s photographs of endangered falcon populations were made during the artist’s travels in the United Arab Emirates and wider Gulf region. Opening up new ideas and opportunities for cultural engagement, travel positions Australian contemporary artists alongside their international peers, as part of a wider global dialogue.http://www.mca.com.au/collection/exhibition/425-mca-collection-new-acquisitions-2007/

AUSTRALIAN CENTRE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, AZURE LYNNE ROBERTS-GOODWIN, The Artist Abroad x 3 solo exhibitions by photographic artists. Lynne Roberts-Goodwin, Solo Exhibition AZURE: THE ARTIST ABROAD, 27 March-27 April 2003. AZURE series comprises 23 large scale photographic images engaging with the artists’ continuing dialogue with the image as an accumulation of cultural, sociopolital and environmental impacts across migration and trade routes within contested sites and existing tho mutable territories and borders. The image fields and faces are researched and produced on location from 2000 – 2002 in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Pakistan and India, locations that elicit and highlight the paradoxical nature of animal and human representation in cultures where iconic photographic representation is culturally absent historically.The work revisions the portrait genre and a questions it’s role in its broadest sense, taking the majestic ‘Falcon’ portrait as the key imagery, both in tableau and transient form.

CITY OF SYDNEY SCULPTURE WALK,: ARTIST: Lynne Roberts-Goodwin commissioned for the ‘TANKSTREAM…into the head of the cove’ public artwork. Curator and Project Director/ Manager of the City of Sydney Sculpture Walk 2000 Sally Couacaud. Sydney Press/Review/Factsheet: Sydney_sculpture_walk The commissioned work by artist Lynne Roberts-Goodwin: ‘Tankstream – Into the head of the cove…’ is a major artwork in five separate locations from Pitt Street Mall to Alfred / Street marking the existence of the historic Sydney Tank Stream bubbling below the city streets. The subterranean movement of a fine stream of fresh spring water is conveyed through the rippling blue light and accompanying text. ‘Tankstream – Into the head of the cove…’ celebrates the memory of the original stream which started in marshes where Pitt Street Mall is now situated, its importance in the founding of the city and its continued survival under the city streets, finally flowing into the harbour at Circular Quay. On-site Production and Installation commencing: June 1999 and officially commissioned in 2000.
