ARTIST INFO

About 

Sammi Lynch (b. 1995) is a recent graduate of the Royal Drawing School whose work explores notions of place and memory and uses the natural world as a cypher for human nature and emotion. Her practice begins with drawing from life with pastels, these drawings then serve as material for working in the studio and are developed and translated through a range of techniques including painting and printmaking. Her work expresses lived experiences of the environment through canvases that emphasise space, texture and light. The effect of these paintings is to distil momentary impressions, observed or remembered, to immerse us in the sensations of a landscape. 

Lynch has been awarded artist residencies in Scotland and Italy and has exhibited in group shows, including exhibitions at Christie’s, Buckingham Palace, and Woolwich Print Fair. Her first solo exhibition The Last Time we Swam was in 2023 with Blue Shop Gallery, London. She has recently had her second solo exhibition at Solito Gallery in Naples, Italy. Lynch’s work is held in public and private collections.
