Lynn works in oils on both canvas and paper and prefers working on large canvases producing mostly landscapes.  Since 1980, Lynn Malin has had 50 solo exhibitions.


"Practicing within the tradition of landscape painting, I am aware that early renditions of Alberta reflected a 19th century European style.  Later Illingsworth Kerr introduced his understanding of modernist colour theory to site-specific observation.  Although I appreciate these historical approaches, I am interested in moving away from the recreation of the landscape as a window into "reality" or an exploration of a two-dimensional surface."
