Lin Emery - Twirl

Lin Emery

This exhibition will feature three monumental kinetic sculptures approximately 10-14 feet in height. Emery’s kinetic sculptures produce constantly changing relationships through the ever-varying configuration of their parts. As Emery says, “Sculpture is living, it’s vital, it’s changeable. Even when you walk around it, it can be something different. Drawing is a reflection and coordinating eye and hand, but sculpture is your mind and an idea.”

Emery’s sculpture is inspired by the forms and forces of nature. Her material of choice, polished marine aluminum, is ideal for capturing the reflections of nature that surround the piece. “I love the natural movement of the trees on the levees, the river, and anything in nature,” she says. Her pieces not only capture the images of their surroundings but cast dancing reflections on them.
