Abstract expressionist painter, Kathryn Lynch, is a proud, self-described simplist. Inspired by her regular walks through lower Manhattan and Shelter Island, Lynch is constantly observing her surroundings, depicting subjects such as landscapes, seascapes, people, dogs, flowers, cityscapes, and tugboats. Her compositions are moody and even childlike in their simplicity with her exuberant, loose brushwork and muted, even limited color pallets. Her landscapes are sparse and atmospheric, representing the artist’s impression of the water at night or a fur-coat clad stranger against a flat white background. Rather than laboring over precise details, Lynch seeks to convey her darker impressions of her environment. She doesn’t aim to paint pretty pictures, and instead endeavors to, ‘express darker things or a philosophical view.” Lynch’s straightforward, expressive paintings are the result of training and experience which allow her to capture the essence of something though sparsity and decisive brushstrokes.
