Haynes creates lusciously composed paintings containing bright textures and patterns. Intricate moments are juxtaposed against flat, black swaths of paint shaped to represent black female bodies. The artist’s painterly devices lead the viewer to question the very nature of color and how historically symbolic meanings surrounding colors and shades, especially black, are constructed. In Haynes’s work, black appears aspirational, dignified, and sublime. The result is a network of images addressing complex topics and stereotypes surrounding black femininity.
Formally, Lynne is a master of color play and conveying textural details. She showcases young women lounging in luxuriously painted patterns against washes of color. Grace portrays tender moments as the hands of her figures rest on swaths of delicately layered areas of patterning and puffy tufts of material that compose of clothing. You can almost feel how soft the textures and patterns are in each painting.
Haynes artwork has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions; as well as in publications, including multiple appearances on the cover of the The New Yorker.
