Gavin Lynch Joins Bau-Xi Gallery
We are excited to announce that Quebec-based painter Gavin Lynch has joined Bau-Xi Gallery.
Challenging the notions of traditional landscape painting with his collage-inspired approach, Gavin Lynch's works on canvas consider our natural environments and question our place as humans within them. Employing subtle pixelation, the artist considers how landscape is increasingly consumed through digital means rather than physical experience.
Gavin Lynch joins Bau-Xi's esteemed stable that includes landscape artists such as Ted Godwin, Kenneth Lochhead, Alex Cameron, and David T. Alexander, who each champion the genre in their own unique way.
About the artist
Gavin Lynch explores landscape with a contemporary point of view, drawing from environmentally aware fiction, art history, and nature itself.
The artist challenges the traditional notion of landscape painting by approaching each work with a digitally informed, collage-like approach. By using opposing visual and textural qualities, Lynch creates a layered and nuanced canvas that plays with dualities of structure. The artist looks to climate change and the inherent destruction of our natural environment through seascapes and forest scenes.
Works by the artist can be found in collections including Royal Bank of Canada; Toronto Dominion Bank; Scotiabank; City of Ottawa Public Art Collection; University of Toronto; Simon Fraser University Permanent Collection, B.C. Hall; Air Canada; among others.
Gavin Lynch has been represented by Bau-Xi Gallery since 2021.
