" Lynch's practice explores the Gothic as a vehicle for sexual transgression, particularly female (homo)sexuality; the German Expressionist ﬁlm 'Madchen in Uniform', the cat as sacred and profane, alongside Siouxsie Sioux's image, encapsulate this fear and desire dichotomy - possession of the image need not necessarily be a negative experience, possession in this context can be a crucial exploration into the rebuttal of patriarchal binaries." - from 'Indecipherable Yearning of the Soul' - by Dr Jenny Keane, a review of the exhibition 'A Poem of Friendship', at Occupy Space 2010, Limerick.
