Lin Emery

Throughout the entire exhibit the artist’s forms are abstracted from nature. Her wind driven sculptures give visible form to the energies moving through nature. Lin Emery’s kinetic sculptures produce constantly changing relationships through the ever-varying configuration of their parts. She has stated, “I have great difficulty in trying to express what I am doing in words, but when I am asked about it I always say that I ‘borrow the forces of nature’. It’s not just that these forces actually set the pieces in motion, but the forms are derived from things like leaves or birds. Though the forms are abstracted, I still consider myself to be in a way a figurative sculptor.”
