– James Lynch –

By Winter 2006

In James Lynch's hands, dreams come to life on the screen as beautifully rendered moments, moving from frame to frame as though the transition from dream-state to gallery has been filtered through a time lapse, the memory hazy in detail but powerful in theme. Lynch is a dream-catcher. He has been working with other people's dreams for some time now, dreams in which he is either a central or peripheral figure. These are not nightmares or sweat-soaked erotica, but rather the dreams of little or nothing that take on epic proportions in wakefulness. – Ashley Crawford
