2022–2023 ‘STRANGE JOURNEY’, ‘FALL’ and ‘lightSTRIKE’ (working tiltles) projects–entailing research and production of photographic, video and object-based works for solo exhibition. These three aligned series of works engage in meteorological and sensorial studies of atmospheric envelopment and elemental variations.
2023–2024 ‘SALE’ Museum Artist Commission Ex-Convitto Palmieri Museum, and major collaborative undertaking with site-specific intervention and installation at the historic Ex-Convitto Palmieri, Lecce, Italy.

'everything remains as it never was' solo exhibition, VOID_MELBOURNE Gallery, Melbourne, Australia, 2022. Within this solo exhibition of photographic and sculptural wall based objects, optical perception is put under pressure in these renditions of a site which is both somewhere and nowhere, and where notions of distance, near and far are contested. Roberts-Goodwin takes us on a perceptual journey to hidden topographies that are subject to being contested, industrialised, regulated, and capitalized. By following the route taken by Lunardi in the 1700s Roberts-Goodwin reveals glimpses of celestial, geographical and terrestrial views that are subject to the slow and fast time of geological and geo-political shifts. Embracing multiple levels of vertical space from the ground to the atmosphere the photographic series ‘everything remains’ reveals the tension between orientation and disorientation, between knowing one’s location and being lost to the spatial temporalities of flight. https://www.voidmelbourne.org/
'BEYOND THIS POINT' solo exhibition, extends the artists research with navigational satellite images, photographs, and traces of topographical terrain as a way to reflect on spatial ambiguity, navigational complexity, and the vertical notion of aerial terrain. Embracing multiple levels of vertical space from the ground to the atmosphere the photographic and object-based series reveals the tension between orientation and disorientation, between knowing one’s location and being lost to the spatial temporalities of flight. Lynne Roberts-Goodwin is sensitive to the way the camera has conditioned and transformed the way we see the world. With a practice that is preoccupied with the language of landscape imagery, Roberts-Goodwin considers the impacts of human presence and intervention in the way geography is partitioned and traversed.

'During the course of this project, and the ongoing wrestling with the balloon, Lynne became absorbed by the contraption itself, seeing the balloon not simply as means of transport but as a shape shifter. Turning her camera away from the ground below and up into the billowing sails, she made new landscapes. The photographs produced are dynamic motion studies that confound our understanding of scale and depth. These are topographies made of textiles. They tug at our desire to locate ourselves in an image and teeter towards abstraction. They serve as an approach to landscape photography that turns away from the site and rests its gaze on the means of movement; the human invention that has utterly transformed modes of occupation. Ever sensitive to the impacts of human intrusion. into the natural world, here Roberts-Goodwin focuses her lens on the device itself. On the instrument of intervention.'
‘TEMPO SQUISITO everything remains as it never was’, solo exhibition, curated by Alec Von Bargen, Artistic Director / Chief Curator, Museo MEà – Forum for Contemporary Art and Storytelling, Italy. Engaging with navigational satellite and ground research, photographic still–moving imagery & topographical terrain shifts along the northern hemisphere latitude parallel between 37.7 N. and 47 N., the body of work, 'TEMPO SQUISITO everything remains as it never was', reflects, challenges & questions critical, though peripheral & seemingly unintentional landscapes.
