Our In the Window spotlight exhibition for May features the whimsical driftwood figures of Lynn Muir.
Lynn is an established British maker, trained in illustration, who has worked making her figures in driftwood since 1980. Lynn works with machine saws, powered sander wheel and hand tools. She often feels she uses the blade of her saw on wood like a pencil on paper and then ‘illustrates’ it with pen and paint.
Lynn’s work is difficult to categorise but she thinks of it as illustrating in the 3-dimensional, the figures suggesting a story to the viewer. They are also incorporated onto her decorated boxes and wall pieces, the subject matter not usually associated with driftwood.
A selection of Lynn’s pieces will be available to purchase from our online shop.
