ABOUT LYNN BASA

Lynn Basa’s abstractions reveal their history. Layers of paint build up on her surfaces never fully hiding the forms underneath. Edges are ever present, reminding the viewer there is always an initial form - the square of the canvas, the intricacies of her cutout works on paper - that each painterly move gets dictated by.

Basa received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BA from Indiana University in Studio Art and Art History. Lynn Basa currently resides in Chicago.
