For The Big Bang catalogue, Phil Lynam writes, "I make paintings that evoke the digital light and saturated color of television screens and computer monitors. Increasingly, we become accustomed to expecting our immersive experiences to come from staring into glowing screens. I make paintings that reference the expectation of transcendence and dislocation."
