Lynn Tomaszewski is an interdisciplinary artist whose work has been shown in solo and group shows throughout the United States and Europe. Her conceptually driven work explores how technology facilitates, alters, and influences perception and, subsequently, how perception constructs ideas. Her paintings, installations, coding, and video work often accumulate images into unified fields that function as visual field theory on human behavior.

She has participated in residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and been an affiliate artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Upcoming activities include a solo show at the Thelma Sandoff Center for the Arts (March 2016) and participation in "Super Natural" at the JM Kohler Art Center (March-Sept., 2016). Tomaszewski’s work is in the public collections of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Center for Contemporary Art in Sacramento, California. She is currently the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
