The colourful optical art paintings attracted interest from local and international buyers, who quickly snapped up all the available works.

Lynda Hyde is a Blue Mountains artist with a creative career that spans four decades. She has worked as an artist, set and costume designer and as a performer in contemporary dance, magic and mime.

Gallery manager, Sarah Birtles said as an art advisory they aimed to put the right artworks in front of the right people at the right time.

She said they were "thrilled at the rapid success for Lynda" and "were very confident going into the exhibition and so pleased that our clients have supported her first solo show with Anala".

Colour Field Eleven investigates Hyde's current focus into the use of visual deception, optical depth and the perception of movement.

Ms Birtles said it is a fascinating intersection of optical art, colour field and hard-edge painting. Through a clever manipulation of line and colour, Hyde is able to create optical illusions where the paintings appear to move, bulge and recede. "I use traditional techniques and equipment from my background in drafting to create hard edged geometric paintings that explore tricks of the eye," she said.

Come and see the works before they go into private collections. The exhibition runs until August 10 at 6 Ross Street, Glenbrook.
