Lynn Aldrich: More Light Than Heat
October 24 - December 5, 2015 

"The fabrics gradate from black, at the bottom, through browns, purples, violets, pinks and golds up to pale lemon and white at the top. Through her deft use of materials, Aldrich has, indeed, staged an ascension, elevating the lowbrow genre of velvet painting into a vehicle of greater profundity, while symbolically suggesting the Ascension, Christ's rise from earthly body to heavenly spirit."

Lynn Adlrich: More Light Than Heat
October 24 - December 5, 2015

"Parading their humble pedigree, the artworks of Los Angeles sculptor Lynn Aldrich can seem almost casual at first. Don't be folled. Precisely compsoed out of largely ordinary materials, each of her sculptures is a self-contained statement of discovery and transcendence."

Lynn Aldrich: More Light Than Heat
October 24 - Decmeber 5, 2015

"Think back to the beginning of the original “Light and Space Movement”—it’s not the West Coast Minimal art movement the 1960s and ’70s, Lynn Aldrich would argue, but rather the stained glass windows found in cathedrals across Western Europe. This original play on light is something that inspired painters during the late Middle Ages, and also serves as a driving inspiration behind works in Aldrich’s latest show, “More Light Than Heat,” at Edward Cella Art + Architecture."

"In 'More LightThan Heat,' Lynn Aldrich transforms Duchampian ready made materials bought in hardware, craft and office supply stores into constructions that have transcendent and spiritual qualities. The pieces in this show, all completed this year, represent an evolutionfor the artist, whose sculptural works of the past two decades havetended to possess more whimsical and homespun aspects."
