Amanda Lynch

Lynch will use a blend of digital technologies and Royal Mail post to communicate with other resident artists while she remains at home shielding. She will create collages inspired by former prisoners and their crimes, some of which seem relatively minor by today’s standards. Some collages will be based on information found in historical documents, others will be fictional, representing the many women whose information was not properly recorded.

 

Lynch’s studio practice is mixed media artist working in a number of mediums from found objects, analogue collage and digital. Lynch has also worked with 2d images bringing in digital art and juxtaposing it with printed media. The reason Lynch makes artwork is to break down and understand what is happening around her, the act of exploring and digesting issues premodernity social issues, is her process into making.
