Lynn Rybicki: Cosmic Manifesto

According to Lynn Rybicki, across the universe and to the furthest reaches of space, you will find life breathing, light living, souls soaring, and colors roaring. This cosmic dance creates a spring of feeling, an ocean of emotion that Rybicki hopes to express in her work.

Rybicki uses bright, clear colors to awaken the spirit and lead it toward bliss and abstract images to convey the more cosmic side of life. She often begins her paintings with bold gestures and broad strokes of acrylic paint applied in washes. These fade and bleed into each other, dripping down the canvas. As the washes dry, shapes and tones reveal themselves, suggesting directions for the piece.

Rybicki responds to the painting’s suggestions, but avoids objects and narratives of everyday life, instead focusing on abstracted landscapes and natural forms. She believes landscape is the holy sanctuary of the earth—wild, free, and elemental, much like the nature of man.

With Cosmic Manifesto, Rybicki hopes to persuade her viewers to think about depth and to consider what may lie beneath the surface of life.
