Lynn Rubenzer explores the mystical underpinnings of the urban landscape in her celebrated portraits of San Francisco. Steeped in the lyricism of the city’s architecture, and nuanced by its sense of individualism and soft light, Lynn’s large-scale oil paintings capture the convergence of structure and humanity with San Francisco’s unique balance of elegance and quirk.
Awarded Critic’s Choice by San Francisco Magazine for her portraits of the city, Lynn has exhibited her work at Stanford University, San Francisco City Hall, art galleries and many established local haunts and organizations. In addition to painting, Lynn creates art installations for storefronts throughout the city, most notably 826 Valencia’s The Pirate Supply Store, a non-profit writing center founded by author Dave Eggers [2008-2011]. In 2015, Lynn completed her first mural on the front exterior of San Francisco's new arts complex The Midway SF titled, "The Ptero Reader"—a pterodactyl tarot card fortune teller.
