Born in Scotland in 1940, Bob Lynn studied art at the Edinburgh College of Art. Since then he has travelled, studied and worked in London and Poland. In the seventies he fell in love with Ireland and after years of commuting between London and the West of Ireland, he finally settled in Co. Wicklow permanently in 1980. Wicklow has given him a rich store of subject matter, which he has drawn on for many years.
The paintings in ‘Oblique Aspects’ are all still life of everyday things from varying angles, juxtaposed in interesting and unique ways. There is a strong emphasis on the power and beauty of colour in its different hues, sometimes exaggerated, other times muted. In this exhibition, Bob Lynn continues his theme of ‘underlying abstraction’: regardless of how representational the work may appear, the literal aspect of the paintings is of little importance compared to the drama of each piece.
