Since 2007, Lynn has been focussing her artistic efforts on a study of anatomy and gesture through figurative bronze sculpture as well as life drawing. She is guided by a desire to express motion, emotion and levity through the still heaviness of the metal. Her body of work ranges from hand-held miniatures to mid-size pieces, and is now growing to include a focus on larger and life-size figures.
As a self taught artist, making her first sculptures in the sand on beach holidays, sculpting emerged organically for Lynn after a 20 year career in graphic design and photography. "Creating figurative work felt so natural from the first time I had the opportunity to work with clay on a trip to Mexico for my 40th birthday. Looking back, however, I see the influences that led me to this work. My years living in France, Montreal and Mexico exposed me to a rich tradition of figurative bronze sculpture, mostly in the form of public art. The monumental sculpture of the angel carrying away a dead soldier that is displayed in Vancouver’s Gastown was directly across the street from my grandfather’s barber shop when I was preschool aged. Much of the work I create even today has the flavour of the grace and lightness that I feel from that piece."
Water is a strong theme in Lynn's work. From dipping a toe in at the edge of a pool, to floating on the surface, to being fully submerged, a relationship between the figure and water seems to show up for her even when when it is unintentional. It speaks to her of a cool and heavy stillness that quiets the mind and body.
In Lynn's study of anatomy and motion, she strives for a gestural, underworked spontaneity. Often a single line or indentation in the clay can communicate mood and story in a way that can be lost by overworking. She currently works from her Studio/Gallery at 1350 Railspur Alley on Granville Island. Her sculptures can be seen both in private collections and galleries in Vancouver, BC, across North America and in Europe. She is a member of the Sculptors Society of BC as well as the Federation of Canadian Artists and she has been participating in various group and solo shows since 2009 (see below).
