Natural Wonder Feature Artist: Jenny Lynn

InLiquid’s most recent exhibition, Natural Wonder, is on display at Park Towne Place Museum and will be showing until December 31. Each week, InLiquid will feature one of the artists of the exhibition on our blog.

In creating her works, photo-artist Jenny Lynn is open to mixing chance with careful planning. The images shown in Natural Wonder were selected from two of her most noted bodies of work: her “Little Rituals” series, and her “Dogs” series. These black and white photographs explore the visual connections between animal, plant and object, and often include geometric shapes and forms found in nature that echo each other — such as triangles, squares, circles — to create bold, simple, graphic images. While she asks the viewer to perceive nature in a way that deviates from our usual colorful conception of it, the images remain grounded in aspects of nature with which we are familiar.

When working in 3D, Jenny Lynn carefully selects photographs from these two bodies of work to assemble and construct what she calls PhotoTotems — free-standing structures featuring imagery on all sides. These dimensional works range in scale from table-top size to 7-feet tall, and are often configured to work in the exhibition space at hand.

Jenny Lynn thinks of her work, whether two or three-dimensional, as visual poetry, and she invites the viewer to engage with the art, and make his/her own associations. To her, “Nature” as a concept encompasses not just people, but animals, plants, objects, and even the man-made.

Come to visit Park Towne Place to support Lynn’s art, in addition to InLiquid member artists Keith SharpCaroline SavageLaura Krasnow, and Leo Hylan! This exhibition is curated by Amie Potsic.

Fran Lightman Gibson a Philadelphia painter working primarily with oil on canvas.
I attribute the source of my artistic inspiration to my love, fear, and awe of nature as it both represents and defines the tension and optimism of life. My “Take Any Road Series” encourages the viewer to have the confidence to experience life no matter how difficult or confusing, beautiful, or powerful. All of this exists with an underlying structure of assumptions.
I think we all see the world a little differently and feel our own experience uniquely.  I paint using what all of my senses have given to me as the experience.  When I paint the sky, I am feeling the wind, putting it to music in my head, remembering the smell of the chance of rain, tasting the air, seeing the clouds dance.

Karen Hunter McLaughlin is a lifelong Philadelphia artist who has worked in traditional 2-D mediums as well as steel wire sculpture. Current work themes are a congruence of large format, multilayer prints creating 2-D inhabitable virtual-vistas, and a collection of smaller prints that focus on human connection, much like the ripple effect of a stone thrown in water.
