Cara Lynch is an emerging artist living and working in New York.
She has completed a number of large-scale public projects in the New York area, including in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Westchester, and beyond. In 2016, Lynch completed her first permanent public work, an installation in the New York City subway system titled, “Inheritance: In Memory of American Glass.” She has been commissioned by, or received grants from the NYC Metropolitan Transit Authority, NYC Department of Transportation, Queens Council on the Arts, Brooklyn Arts Council, and Adelphi University, among others.
Much of my work deals with tensions between art and craft, class and taste, sentiment and spectacle. I am interested in the associations denim has as a working class, American material.
During this residency I will create a series of pulp paintings using stencils and making blowouts, not unlike work done at a previous papermaking residency at Women’s Studio Workshop and in the studio at Dieu Donne. The works will incorporate elements of pattern and repetition.
