CV
LYNN SANDERS CV

Lynn Sanders is an abstract expressionist artist whose work is largely influenced by her relationship to impatience and impulsivity. Working with a variety of mediums on each canvas, she paints intuitively, adding, mixing, editing, and layering colors upon colors that drive the process forward. The resulting works are emotive, tactile, and experiential. Her compositions are created using a custom tool that allows her to paint at a pace that reflects her impatient nature, while achieving just the right amount of transparency and depth. With a focus on process over concept, Sanders’s work invites the viewer to experience her own visual language. “I believe the primary function of art is simply to be admired, and what makes art interesting is intrigue and a curiosity about the artist’s process, and that there should be mystery within each piece.” - Lynn Sanders
