Twin (Jerry and Terry Lynn) works | bio

Growing up in a tight-knit family it was only natural that relatives told stories to the brothers 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 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 -- the two take historic imagery and jolt it into the current century collaboratively and individually.
