Without a map
“Making art is a life long journey, a life long search, for an answer to an unknown question.
There are promises, and there are pitfalls , but best of all there are some days that are wonderfully surprising.
Sometimes you turn a corner and find the unexpected , days when out of nowhere, you find an image that did not exist before, but which will now always have its own place in the world.
Those are the worthwhile days that make me smile.”
Janet Lynch, March 2018
Sarah Brittain-Mansbridge, director of Cornwall Contemporary, with Janet Lynch at the launch of her exhibition ‘Journey – Without a Map’
Throughout April 2018, Janet Lynch showcased another solo exhibition of her narrative and lyrical figurative paintings at Cornwall Contemporary.
Janet Lynch lives and works in West Cornwall and she studied at St. Martins School of Art, later returning to art education at Hornsey College after taking time out to raise her family. She has had a prestigious career to date including solo exhibitions at White Space Gallery, Islington Arts Factory and Lauderdale House in London. Her work has also been featured in group exhibitions at a wide variety of locations including The Barbican, Royal Academy Summer Show, Beardsmore Gallery and the Hyde Park Gallery in London. Her paintings were also recently exhibited in the 2018 influential Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize.
In conjunction with her exhibition, Janet also launched a small book of her poetry –
The book ‘Life, Love, Sex, Death’ featuring Janet’s artwork and 14 of her short poems was sold with all proceeds raised donated to Smile Train – the international children’s charity that transforms the lives of children by giving them the power of a smile and providing corrective surgery for cleft lips and palates. £360 was raised whilst Janet’s exhibition was on, meaning that two children are going to have cleft repair surgery giving them the power to smile. A huge congratulations is due to Janet!
Signed copies of the book are still on sale with us and all money will go directly to Smile Train.
