Storytelling how society works through art, B. Lynch embellishes, makes fun of, and wonders at the societal friction in our new gilded age of income disparity. She has had solo shows at many universities and museums. Recently she has featured her ongoing Red and Grey project outings at Framingham State University of Massachusetts fall ‘18, Phillips Exeter NH summer ’19, upcoming at Holy Cross College in fall ’20 and at Brattleboro Art Museum in 2021. Other solos include Historic Northampton Museum, University of New Hampshire Art Museum, Hood College in Maryland, Eastern Connecticut State, a participatory project at Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Art Complex Museum, and Montserrat College of Art. Her videos have been screened across the country and in Germany.
She is a recipient of several awards, including the President’s Fund for Faculty Excellence Award Simmons University in Boston where she formerly directed the Trustman Art Gallery; a Fellow award from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts; an Artist’s Resource Trust Award — Berkshire Taconic Foundation and a Project Grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, Shelter Island NY.
Lynch lives and works in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood of Boston, in a handmade house/studio with a garden of fruits, vegetables and flowers.
Critics say of her work: “Lynch has inspiration and intellect to spare. Her installation embraces the illogic of chance, double dealing, and rule breaking that too often define our lives. Her work also includes the overt nod to Dada and recalls Duchamp’s passion for chess.” — John Stomberg ART New England. ** “All is Folly succeeds in creating a kind of carnival of paintings – riotous and debauched, and altogether worthwhile.” — Cate McQuaid The Boston Globe.
