I hope to highlight our temporal and transient existences that are seen only fleetingly in the continual cycle of time.

I am using objects that have been shaped or reformed then temporarily held together, to show the silent, constant strength and energy that exists both around them and in them. My work explores the temporary nature of our being, our lack of control and our futile attempts to define ourselves within it.

I am trying to draw attention to the silent energy that exists, and that we exist in; to point to the continual cycle of time and movement of energy that we see our delicate and temporary existence reflected in. Ultimately I just want to share a feeling of wonder at the fragile but beautiful nature of being.

"...Their energy is one of fragile and intricate balance, one where strength and vulnerability coalesce. This moment in time may be easily destroyed but is beautiful whilst in unison. A equilibrium so hard to achieve allows the viewer to take a breath, enjoy the silence and appreciate their own very fragile state of being.

... The lightness of Lynch’s photographs, and the consequences of her one off decisions allow the viewer to mediate on the delicacy and vulnerability of theirs and enjoy the symbolism and suggestions of the objects she chooses to photograph. They should be intense, perhaps uncomfortable to the eye but instead but are exquisite and full of hope and possibility rather than despair."

"...There is a sense that everything is held together and pulled by gravity with such a fine balance that a draft of wind or knock of the tabletop on which they are constructed will bring these sculptural forms tumbling.  The choice of soft fruits as the colourful weights in these constructions compound the sense of how easily bruised or disrupted these balancing acts are.  The use of thread to bind the parts to each other are left intentionally messy and the anticipation that they will easily unravel also built into the experience of these works. Part of the compelling nature of Lynch’s photographs is the intrinsic temporality we experience as our eyes scan the multitude of contingencies that make up these beautiful sculptural forms.

...Lynch’s photographs are taken at the end of time-consuming studio labours, just as everything becomes a single, magical entity, and before it falls apart."
