The exhibition features Aldrich’s Ready-Made sculptures and installations that are simultaneously playful and incisive. She creates all of her work from mass-produced, seemingly boring items and recreates them into loud and colorful works of art that provoke meaningful questions about over-consumption and our environmental state.
Aldrich draws on her hometown of Los Angeles for the issues she references in her artwork, such as pollution, deforestation, and coral reef degradation. These issues manifest her artwork in colorful and intricately-designed sculptures and installations. Aldrich’s Ready-Mades recognize the functional capability of the objects themselves. For instance, she uses water pipes and hoses as representations of waterflow. Aldrich recognizes the pull toward distraction and draws attention to these societal issues through her work, hoping that her work causes awareness when it is viewed.
Free Refill: Old and New Works will run through March 30th. For more information on Lynn Aldrich, click here.
