Sobre mí

I am an environmental artist creating mixed-media assemblages and installations from marine salvage and other found objects culled from coastline beaches; appropriating images - found and digitally manipulated - merging painting, collage, assemblage and sculptural works while addressing issues of environmental concern.

Muestra cambiada por:

I have created a body of work “Pacific Series: Environmental Assemblages,” and recently published a book illustrating my ongoing desire to inspire a new way of seeing and a new way of thinking in the hopes of encouraging others to be vigilant stewards in protecting the state of the oceans and our global environment for future generations.

Me apasiona:

I am passionate about being the change – walking the talk and living the kind of life – that I would like to see in the world to ensure a better, cleaner, safer place now and for future generations. For the past 15 years, I have not owned or driven a car. My main mode of transportation is bicycling, walking or mass transit. Environmental alarms have long been ringing with warning signs of over-population, consumerism, global warming, and deterioration of terrestrial and marine habitats. Changing my own lifestyle and sounding these alarms as an activist and artist is my passion and the subject matter of my art practice from nuclear weapons production and nuclear waste to toxic oil spills and the threat to air and water quality of our oceans and marine habitats.

de Su exhibición:

Known for her environmental stewardship and fine art background, Laura Lynch's mixed media constructions, Pacific Series 1996-2008: Environmental Assemblages, addresses her passion for the state of the oceans and threat to the global environment.

Combining washed-up marine salvage and found objects--organic and non-organic such as sand, tar and feathers--scavenged along the ocean beaches, Lynch creates digital photo montages that are transferred onto colorful beached shipboards, often times with a sense of humor and ironic playfulness. Lynch paints directly onto many of her found boat pieces, collaging images and juxtaposing colors, shapes and textures for the eye to play on. These environmental assemblages are not only painterly but also substantive in their historical context and present-day imagery, transforming the whole into something greater.

 

de Mujeres, poder y política:

Arrasadas
En los últimos años, los devastadores titulares han aparecido con demasiada frecuencia: cantidades inimaginables de víctimas mortales y destrucción a causa de terremotos, huracanes, inundaciones y tsunamis. Los desastres naturales y sus secuelas son catastróficos, pero hasta hace poco llevaban oculta otra tragedia. Son las mujeres quienes sufren, y mueren, más. Sin embargo, también son las mujeres quienes limpian el desorden.
