Lynn Umlauf

Lynn Umlauf, daughter of the sculptor Charles Umlauf, is a painter and sculptor, or sculptor and painter – it would be hard to say which she considers her priority. She creates, in parallel, a sculpture and a work on paper and tries to express the same feeling in different media. She likes to compare herself to a writer who studies and evaluates each stage, each “chapter” in the course of her work, or to an architect who sees the three-dimensional aspect of a drawing. In this exhibition we are presenting works in pastel and acrylic on paper glued on to a canvas, as well as pastels on paper with an occasional bit of collage dating from the day or month when the works were finished (May 5, 1978), hence the title given them by Lynn Umlauf.
