Lynn Imperatore is an American born visual artist and educator who moved to the UK in 2008. She is currently engaged in practice-based PhD research at The University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol. Her doctoral research is tentatively titled "The Visual Anthropology of Sleep". She attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, received her undergraduate degree for New York University (NYU) and her MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College. She has exhibited in the both the US and Europe.
Drawing has always been the primary focus of her practice. An ability to draw appeared early and quite fully formed, but she searched & struggled for decades to move beyond the dazzle of effortless representation towards something more satisfying, a narrative thread which might speak out of a deeper sense of imagery. Hence her practice is an endeavour to track clues of the inner existence, a hunt for a hint of the unconscious.
Selected exhibitions include: Solo exhibits at Marlboro College, Marlboro, Vermont, and the University of Vermont, as well as group shows, including: Exposing Scarlet: A Visual Response to The Scarlet Letter (2004), Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA , Narration: Emblem & Sequence in Contemporary Art (Honorable Mention), Creative Arts Workshop, New Haven, CT , New England/New York/New Talent 2001 University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, Portrait of My Mother...Things Left Unsaid (2003), CCA, Sacramento, CA, Front Line: Contemporary Draughtsmen in New England (1999), Boston Athenaeum, Boston, MA.
