Lou Lynn has been exploring the sculptural potential of glass since the mid-1980s. Her sculpture has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in the permanent collections of the Kamloops Public Art Gallery; Vancouver Centennial Museum; British Columbia Provincial Art Collection; Claridge Collection; Xerox of Canada Collection; Foreign Affairs Canada ; Berlin Embassy Collection; GlasMuseum ; Denmark; and the Corning Museum of Glass.
Ms. Lynn has been awarded grants from the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation; the BC Arts Council; the Vancouver Foundation; and the Canada Council for the Arts.
"My sculpture is informed by architecture, archaeology and industrial objects. The recent body of work references the function and aesthetics of hand-tools and functional objects that have been used throughout history. I am interested in combining the fragility, strength, and optical properties of glass with bronze or aluminum to create contemporary forms that are reminiscent of artifacts from times past. The juxtaposition of contrasting materials invites the viewer to explore the tension that exists between strength and fragility."
