Oil, Acrylic, & Watercolour 

I have a thing for the direct experience. I’ve always strived to create art that reflects just that. It is a daunting exercise. There is power in the moments of our lives. I make pictures as a discipline to be present for the immediate experience. It is this impetus that sends me into exploring landscapes, rendering a model or portrait – that direct experience, to see what I could see, mind and body.

To me painting and making images is a powerful and fundamental form of expression and so becomes a way to immerse myself in the creative process and push into the limitless possibilities. To commit to the experience. I’d rather reach and fall down than stagnate. There are many reasons why a picture is made and we’ll explore them. I would like to invite you into a dialogue of our common journey – picture making and storytelling. I’d like to share what I’ve learned over the last 45 years navigating through the world of art, as a practitioner and a professional.

About The Artist

Brent Lynch Artwork

Brent Lynch is an award-winning artist recognized for his bold, evocative landscape and figurative paintings.

He has an innate passion for the direct experience and observation of his surroundings.  Life drawing and painting ‘en plein air’ or ‘field studies’, introduced to him in the early art school days, became the foundation of his work.

Brent attended The Vancouver School of Art ( later ‘Emily Carr University of Art & Design’ ), Langara College, Fine Art Program and St. Martin’s College of Art and Design, London, England. In 1976, after his studies, the young artist entered the world of illustration and design affording him a living and so began a long and successful career.

Brent has produced an extensive body of work in various disciplines of the arts.

Lynch was recognized as one of Canada’s top illustrators creating art for regional, national and international dance, theatre, music and sports. Over the years Lynch has been published in prominent magazines, newspapers, publishers and record covers. He has produced a number of murals for both private and public venues commissioned by international corporations, governments and institutions. It was a natural evolution to pursue his own work by 1995 and he never looked back. Represented by galleries in Canada, USA and Mexico, his work is in private and public collections worldwide.

He lives in Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island where he can easily venture out his back door into the landscapes he loves.
