LYNN SANDERS
"I have often felt that my work is a conversation with myself. It’s a reaction to my emotions and the ebb and flow of my everyday life, the interactions I have with loved ones and the feelings that brings forth. The compositional movement of each piece through brush velocity and paint saturation are derived from emotions and placed on the canvas. These swift large gestural pulls are edited, overlaid and subdued with layers. The fast-paced marks reflect my impatient personality, the color choices my emotions. I am not looking to camouflage those manifestations of my thoughts and feelings but to exploit them and understand the choices of color and the relationship of negative space. Reading each piece and knowing that each movement and mixture is a snapshot of a specific time in my life. The interior chaos of these compositions seems to reflect the disorganization of life and allows me to keep a current diary of my state of mind." - Sanders
