We are so thrilled to have Derek Lynch's work on view at the cafe September 9th through November 9th. Derek's work involves the creation of urban-based idealized landscapes in dreamlike circumstances. His use of ambiguous relationships and unsettling juxtapositions of geographic locations in the Bay area are prominent features.
Derek merges new digital photography with painting and Bay Area architecture to create new perspectives, focusing on San Francisco neighborhoods as his primary subject. The outcome can be whimsical and yet it offers a serious sociopolitical commentary on the changes to our urban landscape.
In 2006, Derek began working with architectural forms, derived from digital technology, with the use of printmaking, ink, pencil markers, acrylic paint, and archival pigment.
Check out his incredible creations and join us for an artists reception September 9 12pm to 3pm.
