Haley-Henman Gallery presents Midge Lynn: Synecdoche opening reception
Synecdoche describes Midge Lynn's process of capturing a particular moment in the life of the model, which expresses insight into their whole being. She sets her portraits in everyday moments. For this, she captures her unassuming models by photography, which she then processes into drawings and paintings. It is in this transition that her creative intuition melds psychology and symbolism.
In these new paintings she uses the motif of pattern, a reference to Konrad Lueg (1963-68), to illustrate the larger social system of her subjects. James Kille, Linda Coleman, Ann Marie Newman will perform at the opening reception. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 4.
