Modern minimalism: one artist's journey
In many canvases, Flynn uses extensive glaze work, layering color over color to build a perceived three dimensional color space. The viewer engages in an insight-based discovery process as his/her awareness moves among the many visual layers. This 50 x 60 inch painting deals with perception and how we relate as an object to the ever-moving demands of our environment. Which aspects of the painting are solid and which are fluid? What aspects of self are solid and which are fluid - moving in response to an ever-changing environment?
Flynn states, “The piece is an homage to the feeling of reunion and cleansing we receive from nature. It affirms the power of nature to change us, to make us better.”
Curator of Flow Art Space Melissa Metzler described this piece as “stunning”.
