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.
