A tour of the portfolio is a visual cascade, enveloping the viewer in sunlit meadows and frozen storm clouds. In each piece there is a feeling of hidden forces, of something just out of reach. Light and shadow are mingled, letting us feel that each piece may reveal a dark and beautiful truth.
Studying under master painters of the New York Art Student’s League, such as Sherrie McGraw and David Leffel, Flynn paints in the style of Abstract Realism. In this approach, only essential details are executed using a high contrast between dark and light. The form emerges fully through the viewer’s imagination. Using a reverse process, the drawing that would normally live underneath the paint is achieved on the surface of the work through strong lines and cuts in the paint.
