Lynn Criswell   2006

Lynn Criswell’s work has been about making sense of the past, reconciling it with the present, and recognizing where the notion of choice has been illusory, particularly for women. Her hammered sheet lead paintings focus on gender stereotyping and childhood. Images of descriptive fragmented text and human figures float on the wooden veneer surface like dramatic tableaux. A single word and a child’s expression -whether a smile or a scream – compete for the viewer’s attention.
