Robert A. Flynn
Robert Flynn: Art from the Permanent Collection is a celebration of the prolific career of this Pacific Northwest artist. Born in 1930, Flynn worked in the Seattle area for 17 years and then another 40 years on the island of Kauai, where he still creates art today. A sculptor, painter, and printmaker, he is self-trained but taught art at Broadway Junior College and at a night school. Originally employed as a sign painter with a pictorial style, Flynn decided to leave this job in order to devote more time to his art with the emotional support of his wife, Sharon.
In an interview with the curator for the exhibit, Flynn recounts how he “was blown away seeing Jackson Pollock’s work at Seattle Art Museum” sometime in the 1950s. He lists many international modern and contemporary artists as inspiration for his work, but places a heavy emphasis on Pollock and the romantic and tonal painter Albert Pinkham Ryder. This exhibit will include both sculpture and paintings, many of which are abstract. The viewer will be able to observe both the thick paint strokes of Ryder, the drops reminiscent of Pollock, and many other Modern art techniques and styles that Flynn made his own throughout his career.
