'Bob Lynn “New Work”'
From Sunday, 31 May 2015 to Sunday, 28 June 2015
Born in Scotland in 1940, Bob Lynn studied art at the Edinburgh
College of Art. Since then he has travelled, studied and worked in London and
Poland. In the seventies he fell in love with Ireland and after years of
commuting between London and the West of Ireland, he finally settled in Co.
Wicklow permanently in 1980.
Wicklow has given him a rich store of subject matter, which he has
drawn on for many years. His earlier paintings, although recognisable in the
drawing aspect, showed the beginnings of his use of exaggerated colour.
Strictly speaking his work inhabits a world somewhere between figuration and
abstraction: objects and things are strongly suggested if not actually
depicted. In his recent work colour is to the fore. Working in the typical
Scottish 'colourist' tradition, he uses vibrant colours and broad brushstrokes
and has a brilliant compositional sense to create stunning results.
