Description

Using elements such as children-at-play and elements from nature, Lynn Criswell’s artworks are meant to provide a moment of pause and reflection during the busy work day. Located in the third and fourth floor lunchroom areas, the two porcelain enameled collages strive for a daydream like quality. A bronze sculpture resembling the three-dimensional line drawing of a twig house floats in front of the one of the enamel panels. According to the artist, it is meant to symbolize the love and security needed for a child to play and grow. Contour drawings of hands offer to share a precious object such as a ring, flower or feather with viewers. Hand drawn flowers represent growth and renewal. These collages offer a moment to dream and reflect.
