EXHIBITING FEB. 11, 2022, FOLLOWING

CONCERT FEATURING PARKER QUARTET

 

The Artist

Caitlin Flynn received her BFA from the University of New Hampshire. While attending UNH she sold and exhibited her work.

After living and exhibiting in Santiago, Chile, Flynn moved to NYC and earned her Master’s degree from Pratt Institute.

She lived and exhibited in NYC for 6 years before moving to Neptune Beach, FL.

Flynn currently exhibits and sells her work internationally.

Flynn gathers inspiration from both Abstract Expressionism, Romare Beardon, Wolf Kahan, and the Bay Area Figurative Movement.

“Flynn offered emotive abstract ocean scenes reminiscent of Richard Diebenkorn, as well as moody expressionist figures. She imbues all her work, figurative and abstract, with a gracefulness and painterly sensitivity.” — The Huffington Post

Her work can be seen locally at Steller’s Gallery in San Marco or by private appointment in her Atlantic Beach gallery space.

Statement

Flynn works with the concept of memory in her studies, often beginning with a specific experience — either her own or inspired by a photograph. Memory is fluid; figures are intentionally kept loose and gestural. She plays with paint. Like memory, it’s sometimes lush and vibrant, sometimes thin and dripping away. Land and seascapes are broad and dreamy, stripped of specificity. Color, composition and mood dominate the landscape. 

Her most recent work draws attention to the American Dream. Challenging us to define it.

Flynn creates paintings that use the personal to access the universal, allowing viewers to drift into an emotive sense of time and space.

“To me, art is about losing yourself and tapping into somethin larger- suspending time in wonder- angst- and hope”
