“The paintings and works on paper here represent my continued exploration of the relationship between traditional paintings subject and methods, and illusionism, abstraction and political/philisophical issues.” Lynn Talbot

I was recently looking at the work of Harry  Smith, an artist who especially reminds me of my own goal as an artist to be free of conceptual rigidity. His oeuvre combined art, filmmaking, music, and mysticism in a continually fluid form of his own design. His work is also interesting to me because despite this profusion of influences, he is conceptually reductive in his intent.

Pierogi gallery sold Lynn Talbot’s “The Vermillionaire” (2005) for €2,200.)
