GAVIN LYNCH
OLD MAGIC
SEPTEMBER 7 – 28, 2013OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 6 – 8PM
Elissa Cristall Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition for Ottawa-based artist Gavin Lynch.
Gavin Lynch employs the genre of landscape as a broad working platform for depicting both his “home landscape” of northern British Columbia and its history. He uses a collage approach to the picture plane, using various painterly applications, styles and perspectives which allows for a varied and, at times, unexpected combination of pictorial elements, ranging from the personal to the collective. Contemporaneous figures and structures are often superimposed upon romantic landscape motifs, hence collapsing the temporal space between traditional notions of the landscape genre and issues pertaining to the politics of landscape painting.Gavin Lynch received a BFA from Emily Carr University in 2009 and an MFA from the University of Ottawa in 2012. He was the recipient of the 2012 Michel Goulet Prize for the Outstanding Master’s Thesis. Through studio visits and graduate exhibitions Gavin’s works have been collected by curators and private individuals. Gavin Lynch currently lives and works in Ottawa and is a full-time painter.
