‘Light Through the Darkness’ is Kristy’s first exhibition, and lot19 is excited to share this special collection of works with you. The experience can also be seen through Kristy’s eyes by using vision restricting glasses which will be available at the gallery.

Kristy Lynch is a 37 year old up-and-coming artist from Bendigo whose passions include acts of service to her community. She plans to study Community Services with a focus on alcohol and other drugs and the mental health sector.

Kristy uses acrylic on canvas in a monochrome palette and will explore further hues in future works. Kristy focuses on landscape pieces as she has always felt a strong connection with nature.

Kristy lost her sight in 2018, and as a result, her sense of self and purpose in the world. She began painting as therapy in 2019 after entering Drug Rehabilitation, discovering a hidden talent when painting for her father. Her paintings changed as she progressed through rehabilitation and the challenges faced reintegrating into her community and into a sober lifestyle.

Kristy uses a monochrome palette as it allows her to see the contrast more easily as she paints.
