Artist Statement

Gerry Lynch and Pat Scull have been working artists in the Raleigh area for over 20 years and have been in each other's orbit for just as long.

Lynch's work is influenced by her love of Asian calligraphy and Arabic script, architectural design and haute couture. As she works, she concentrates on the gesture of the paint with an all-over approach to the surface of the canvas. For many years she has limited herself to painting in tones of only black and white, exploring the bare essentials of her calligraphic marks in paint. With her new work, Lynch boldly introduces one color or shades of one color to her black and white palette.

Scull's new work brings the surface design of her ceramics onto canvas. Several pieces of her 3-D work are included so that the evolution of her iconography from ceramics onto canvas can be appreciated.

She has often used the mantra, "I am just a tiny molecule moving through space and time" to ease her through difficult personal situations. This placement of herself as something tiny in a vast universe helps put things into perspective. These new paintings explore this idea of scale and perspective as she uses imagery – from cells to planets – that combines her imaginary interpretation of the microscopic with that of the telescopic.
