Professional Summary

Lynch collaborates with a variety of partners on projects that range from installations to sculptural objects and material imagery. He brings an experimental and satirical approach that subverts conventional applications for engineered building products to inspire critical investigation of our designed environment. Since 1996, Matt has collaborated with Steve Badgett under the name SIMPARCH. SIMPARCH creates site specific structures for communal interaction and social exchange. SIMPARCH produced a permanent commission by the General Services Commission for a newly constructed Land Port of Entry in Fabens, TX. In 2015, Lynch began working with Curtis Goldstein (UC MFA 2013) to create mosaics with Formica laminate. These labor and industry themed mosaics can be seen at The Cincinnati Art Museum, the Contemporary Art Center, and The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal. Matt holds an MFA from Syracuse University and a BFA from Ball State University.
