    About The Work

    Lynn Aldrich's work is a transformative exercise in perceptual transfiguration, a literal conversion of the mundane into unusual entities and unfamiliar encounters. Though often filled with humor and play, many pieces have an undeniable subtext of ecological concern, accompanied by a surprising spiritual longing. Like totemic reminders of our excessive consumption, her sculptures usually mimic phenomena in nature through artificial means; water and waves, flora and fauna, skies and galaxies are all strangely rendered in plastic, vinyl, fake fur or foam. This visual and conceptual tension between the natural and synthetic reminds us of the precarious condition of the human-made world and our own temporality.
