I had the great opportunity of attending Lyndal Osborne’s talk and the opening of her retrospective exhibition Bowerbird: Life as Art last January 31, 2014 at the Art Gallery of Alberta. The exhibition is a survey of Lyndal’s 40 year career as an artist. Featured in the exhibition are her early print works to her present day sculptures and installations.
Lyndal Osborne is a magnificent woman who is currently featured at the AGA.
“I feel like an archeologist seeking and retrieving discarded fragments of the urban environment and the dried out remains of natures’ seasons. All have gone through their prime of life and now remain as relics of past glories. The objects are then recreated by me as a direct response to my encounters in nature in the role of observer and participant.”
