About the artist:
Kathryn Lynch’s paintings draw from a variety of subjects, often daily encounters that range from NY’s Hudson Valley landscape, NYC cityscapes, New England seascapes, and sometimes dogs, people, flowers, and even tug boats. Her paintings are not “plein air”, or observed from direct observation, but capture what is caught in the periphery, or peripheral vision – a sense form, light, and atmosphere. The simplicity of forms, and direct, yet seemingly loose strokes in her paint handling, become distilled records of passing moments. She says: “I am not painting a specific place, I’m painting a specific mood and feeling about a place.” … “because when I leave a place it’s still with me—I keep painting it.”
Kathryn Lynch earned her BA from William Smith College, and her MFA from University of Pennsylvania. She also studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her recent solo shows include City Grit, Sears-Peyton Gallery, NYC; Restless Nights, Private Public Gallery, Hudson NY; Between the Streets, Turn Gallery, Palour Room, NYC; Islands, The Drawing Room Gallery, East Hampton, NY; Far Away Home, Sears-Peyton, Gallery, NYC; Hot Days and Nights, Tayloe Piggott Gallery, Jackson Hole, WY. Her awards include a 2018 NYSCA/ NYFA Artist Fellowship in painting, and residencies at Yaddo, Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation, Foundation Valparaiso and the Millay Colony. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, Art News, the online contemporary art magazine Two Coats of Paint and Guernica Magazine, among other publications. Her work is in public and corporate collections such as the University of California Berkeley Art Museum, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Microsoft, Johnson and Johnsonand others.
