Peter Lynn lives and works on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City. His parents are both artists and encouraged an interest in painting at an early age. He went on to recieve a BA, magna cum laude with honors in fine arts, from Brandeis University and an MFA from the University of Iowa. While in graduate school and for several years after, he began exploring relationships between the basic elements of color, form, line and texture on a flat plane – the canvas.
At that time his work was purely abstract. He was interested more in the visual impact and felt that recognizable subject matter was distracting from his objective. During the following years he developed the technique of first applying layers of color and then covering the entire surface with thin, vertical, hand painted lines of varying opacity. The resulting image was one of unique interplay between color, light and texture.
Living in such varied places as the West Indies, the Southwestern U.S and Lower East Side of Manhattan (NYC) he has always been inspired by the local culture, architecture, design and landscape. He began to incorporate these subjects and images into his work while maintaining its unique visual aspect. He has been keeping a photographic record of changing neighborhoods over the past thirty years including Soho, the South Street Seaport District and most recently, the Lower East Side. Before gentrification, renovation and commercial development transform these places forever, this record allows him to continue to create these personal visual images.
Peter Lynn’s work has been shown at galleries in New York, Taos (New Mexico), Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and at the Grand Palais in Paris, France. He is represented in private collections throughout the United States, Europe and the Caribbean.
