Lynn has developed a process of image making that utilizes gunpowder as a medium. this work is an extension of her exploration of elemental 'drawing' materials, such as fire, smoke, natural earth pigments and charcoals.

The images are a record of an active event, capturing the residual effects released by the burning object. It is a transformative process that explores the alchemic element of fire. The ephemeral images remain as a memory, recording subtle shifts in movement and intensity and are a reflection on our own temporal nature. The use of fire and organic form, in the images, parallel the cycles of renewal and loss.
