Double Edged Faces: Paintings and Constructions
Lynn Criswell



March 14 - March 28, 1998

Lynn Criswell's work demonstrates a skillful and elegant use of unusual materials. Using birch panels as her canvas, she combines oil paints, sheet lead, plaster, cast bronze and aluminium to create ironic statements about romance, relationships and growing up in the 1950's. The collision of young girl's aesthetics with adult realities, lost innocence and thwarted romantic expectations are the themes at work in Criswell's constructions, explored through popular rhymes sung by girls playing jump rope or hide-and-seek. 

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 14th, 6-8pm
