Whitney Lynn

Whitney Lynn


The work of multimedia artist Whitney Lynn.  Lynn currently has a solo show, After The Fall, at Bass & Reiner Gallery in SF.  From the press release:

Mining cultural and political histories to question ideas of boundaries and containment, history and restaging, context and form, Lynn’s work feels especially prescient as we brace for life under a new president, and consider historical representations and perceptions of women in this new era.

After The Fall is an exploration into power structures as they relate to women through myths, rumors, and artistic representations. A series of large scale drawings rework Old Master and Post-Impressionist paintings into proposals for neon signs. Created while Lynn was in residence at The Neon Museum Las Vegas, the drawings are inspired by the twinkling lights of Sin City and the simplistic representations of temptresses on signs that lure visitors to clubs and casinos. Using the language of neon, Lynn proposes signs that represent stories of temptresses from the bible – Eve, Jezebel, and Lott’s daughters.
