Painting primarily onto salvaged plywood sheets, leaving areas raw and exposed, Bill Lynch (1960–2013) created a lucid body of work that draws on a wide variety of sources—from nature to folk and indigenous art to Asian calligraphic forms to religious and mythological motifs. The artist’s vested interest in Chinese painting is apparent in his confident gestures, combining a dry lambent brush and thick, pasty paint. This first comprehensive monograph includes more than fifty vibrant paintings by Lynch, along with numerous installation views of past exhibitions. The book includes an essay by Irish critic, curator, and professor Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith; a conversation between artist Verne Dawson (Lynch’s friend) and Matthew Higgs (White Columns director); and never-before-published writings by the artist.
