Jerry Lynn

b. 1975, Tennessee
Life's Swift Stream
Life's Swift Stream

Growing up in a tight-knit family, it was only natural that relatives told stories to Jerry and his twin brother Terry about growing up in rural communities across the Southeastern US. Those memories and reflections have become the brothers' visual vocabulary. Their historically narrative paintings depict an unidentifiable time period in Black family life: fields, churches, blues music, and family gatherings.

Through the choice of colors, urban marks that might be symbolic of hip hop or graffiti, and collaged items – be it cotton bolls, twill ticking, newspaper clippings, or glitter– Jerry takes historic imagery and jolts it into the current century.
