Turn Gallery presents Between the Streets, a solo exhibition in our Parlour Room of paintings by Kathryn Lynch.
From surrounding waterways to the dissecting city streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn, Lynch illuminates scenes that are both metaphor and balm for the passing of time. Hovering between realism and abstraction she presents urban scenes that typically flash by in the corner of the commuter’s eye. Usually fleeting moments of our outer world are paused and rendered through Lynch’s inner world of gentle poetic gravity. Boats bopping on the Hudson, a portrait of a lone skyscraper, the subway rumbling across its highest bridge, or streets abuzz with city lights, Lynch’s canvases tap into the unconscious looking to reveal the solitary explorer in each of us - the inner author of our unique stories between the streets.
