Have a spare 20 minutes and a curious mind? Here’s a veritable library of free art videos for you to select from!

Elevenses with Lynne

I started to broadcast livestreams called ‘Elevenses with Lynne’ in March 2020 and continued to do so throughout lockdown. They ranged from being about specific artworks to any art that was / is weird and wonderful; the episodes with ‘weird’ in the title cover several strange works each with their own story to tell and most with a ‘eugh’ factor! Each livestream was loosely scripted, unedited, relaxed and around 20 minutes long. You can access each recorded livestream at the bottom of the page in the series entitled ‘Elevenses with Lynne’.

If you prefer to read rather than watch, I wrote a complementary Elevenses blog for many of the works which also has links to the relevant recordings.

Pepped up by Paintings and Curated Canapés and Cocktails – bite sized arty titbits

Armed with a green screen, microphone, lights and an iPhone, I started to make little films in my kitchen. The result was Pepped up by Paintings which morphed into Curated Canapés and Cocktails. These videos range in length from a minute to 7 or 8 minutes long and a few form their own little mini-series!

Titian’s ‘poesie’ series

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I adore Titian. The ‘Love, Desire, Death’ exhibition at the National Gallery in 2021 inspired me to buy a green screen and make my first foray into creating videos. There are six paintings in this exhibition and I had so much to say that I made three 5 minute films about each. As part of these videos, I talk about the curious biographies of the works themselves, which was also the subject of my podcast with Jo McLaughlin which you can access on the Podcasts and Print page.

In each series, the most recent video will always be the one displayed but you can delve into the archives by clicking the three lines to the top right corner and accessing the playlist.

I hope you enjoy them.
