2013 Artist: Terry Lynn

“I, Terry Lynn, was born in Memphis, Tennessee and grew up in Arlington. I began showing my paintings at Gestine Art Gallery on Beale Street. I enrolled in architectural technology before studying for a BFA at the University of Memphis, where I received a BFA. I collaborate on art with my twin brother Jerry under the signature “Twin.” My twin and I have shown in many solo and group exhibitions and have been collected worldwide. 

I have used sculpture, painting, and installations to explore the complexity between art and life. I’m interested in land, figure, place, and time. Art is life and life is art. My art challenges traditional beliefs through artistic choices. 

I honed my labor extensive approach as a teenager while working as a laborer with my brick mason grandfather. I developed a painterly stroke from working with my father painting and remodeling homes. I learned the value of hard work and a work ethic at a very young age. I spent hours practicing and improving my craft. I remember listening to families stories of how things used to be. Inspired by those narratives and personal revelations, I create work that evokes and challenges the viewers’ memories and emotional response.”
