Honouring Earth Day today with work by Gavin Lynch, whose contemporary landscapes draw from environmentally aware fiction, art history, and nature itself. He focuses on climate change and the destruction of our natural environment.
A walk in the forest near his home in Walkefield, Quebec, sparks inspiration for Lynch’s surreal landscapes, so do photos, the internet and historical art. He uses these items to create digital landscapes, which he then re-interprets in paint on canvas.
“Lynch creates a layered and nuanced canvas that plays with the sculptural qualities of paint,” says Bau-Xi gallery which represents him. “His mixed-media compositions incorporate various applications including acrylic paint, watercolour, and sand.”
