ABOUT Lynne Friedman
I find inspiration in the indomitable cycles of the natural world. The impulse that transforms experience and the idea into visual forms is the acknowledgment of transience and the possibility of renewal. Capturing the impermanence of nature at its peak, I utilize natural objects, plants and flowers as a starting point to explore underlying essence and idea through visual means.
