Frances Hynes lives and works in New York, and holds a master’s degree from New York University. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and the Art Students League in Woodstock, New York. Hynes is a founding member of Independent Studios I, a group of artists that has maintained a cooperative workspace in Long Island City, NY since 1978.

Frances Hynes conveys a high sympathetic and personal sense of place in her paintings—intimate, painterly abstractions with underlying grid structures where foreground and background collapse. Hynes aims to convey the feel of a place, rather than the actual look of it. She calls her paintings “memory-scapes” and the everyday locales are seemingly nondescript but made uniquely her own through sense of style and emotion.
