Lynne Harlow: Loomings

Frame 301 Gallery

July 11, 2022 - September 24, 2022

In her installation and interdisciplinary practice, the Providence, Rhode Island artist, Lynne Harlow, transforms traditional and nontraditional spaces using modest materials and processes. Taking inspiration from the Minimalists and the Light and Space artists of the 1960 and 1970s, Harlow uses industrially made materials, such as tinted Plexiglass, vinyl, and house paint, to create immersive and multi-sensory experiences for the viewer that are vibrant, sometimes provocatively garish, and also at times soft, subtle, and barely there. In her installation for the 301 Frame Gallery, Harlow uses broad swaths of color and playful curtains of bright pink vinyl that dynamically and playfully interact within the narrow confines of the space. Harlow’s less is more approach is not just an homage to minimalist art traditions or created for simple visual effect. Rather, her installations explore the dynamic physicality and the phenomenological possibilities of light and color.  Harlow states, “I arrive at my pieces by reducing physical and visual information.  This process of reduction, a steady taking away, is ultimately intended to be an act of generosity.  In each piece I’m looking for the point at which these reductions allow me to give the most.”
