Close to Home / Anne Lynch - 3D virtual exhibition by Arts Project Australia

Close to Home / Anne Lynch

Thu, 10/15/2020 to Thu, 10/22/2020

curated by:

Anne Lynch is an accomplished artist who has sustained a professional art practice since the early nineties. She is known for her pastel on paper artworks; small-scale landscapes that have a sense of melancholy, as well as lone figures that hover over gentle fields of colour. Her early work centred on rural landscapes, while recent drawings increasingly focus on subjects closer to home—fleeting domestic moments suspended in time.

In our current exhibition Close to Home, viewers will encounter a selection of Lynch's colourful domestic scenes; people joyfully playing instruments, dancing and waving, while a cat sprawls on a bright blue carpet. Birds perch on and in glass jars, fish swim in a tank surrounded by houseplants, and fresh flowers are arranged in vases perfectly poised on tabletops. This intimate collection could be interpreted as reflecting an artist's yearning—a desire for joy, domestic bliss and harmony.

Lynch has worked at Arts Project Australia since 1995 and presented her first solo show in 2013. Her work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions including Outsider Art Fair, Phyllis Kind Gallery, New York.

Public collections include the National Gallery of Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria, as gifted by Stuart Purves. Her work is held in national, international, corporate and private collections.
