Modern Obstacles in Migratory Pathways: In “Flight Risk“, Lynne Parks displays her passion for and dedication to the avian world. Through her meticulous, mindful craft, the incredible beauty of these animals is revealed, yet upon closer inspection there lies a narrative. The organic color and line of the birds’ feathers is among lines of light formed by manufactured glass. The birds are still, lifeless. Parks confronts us with documentation of the damage our constructed lives unintentionally leave in their wake. Our mark — our footprint — is now visible.
Exhibition ran August 20 – September 18, 2015 at the The SBX gallery
