Craig Lynberg is inspired by figures and paintings from the past. Using lighting in his paintings that represent classic techniques, he creates an atmosphere of the old masters, yet also destroys the imagery with an abstract application of paint giving the illusion of the imagery disintegrating on the canvas. Some of his details are focused while others are washed away. It’s about accidents and discovery on the painting from scraping away at the surface which cause something else to be revealed through the layers of paint.
Born in 1988 in Atlanta, Craig graduated from the College of Charleston with a BA in Studio Art. He was awarded the Janet Simcox Scholarship and has worked for multiple artists out of NYC including CJ Hendry. He has just moved to Raleigh NC, where he now keeps his studio.
