Works by sculptor Angelique Lynch (University Events)
Lynch has a MFA from East Tennessee State University in sculpture and is well versed in many processes including stone carving, metal fabrication and woodworking techniques. She grew up in Jonesborough and now lives in Piney Flats.
The work investigates social patterns associated with preconceived roles of gender and how those patterns relate to housework. The artist experiments with an array of different materials including wood, stone, steel and bronze that are fashioned into forms such as irons, ironing boards and clothes pins.
Lynch describes her work as "an endeavor to elevate ordinary household tools into artworks with meaningful resonance." The household tools of daily life become surrogates for her personal symbols and thoughts.
