|About the Artist||Born circa 1960, Navajo/ Dineh heritage
" Rhett Lynch is an artist who creates mixed-media paintings that have meaning to his native culture. Some of his works he describes as "meditative mantras" in a series called Prayers for Healing. Each has a base of gold foil, which is covered with acrylic layers and strips of fabric with sacred substances including tobacco and sage.
Lynch was raised in Lubbock, Texas and before settling in New Mexico. Lynch has lived in New York City, Arizona and California as well as Texas."
A chapter in Contemporary Native American Artists (2012) was devoted to Lynch, shares both the artist in his environment as well as several examples of Mr. Lynch's paintings.
Clearly, heavily saturated color is a constant in nearly all his paintings.
