Coming up next, using cold hard steel to bring life
to emotions. That’s the theme of this new art exhibit in Wilmington.
We’ll take you there. Its all coming up on WHYY's Delaware Tonight.
A one of a kind exhibit of steel sculptures is the
newest entry at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts. Its
Lynden Cline’s "secrets" on display through the end of
August. WHYY’s videographer Lynn Cates takes us on the tour.
Executive Director, Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts:
Lynden Cline is an artist who is based in
Washington, DC. And she works with steel. She uses universal symbols,
universal objects – trees, fences, chairs, and for her they have
specific meaning. But for a visitor and for a viewer, when they
experience her work it becomes universal in a sense that every viewer
brings their own experiences to the work as well as what the
artist’s intent originally was. One of the remarkable things about
Lynden’s work ultimately is the fact that what drives the work is as
much about space and about how there is so much air within the
sculptures. If you start to look at the works you will see that
because of the nature of the steel and the images that she uses, they
are dense in their intent and in their imagery but at the same time
they are very airy. She makes it effortless and in that way it just
reveals the work even more.
