Lyndsey Fryman is a Kentucky based artist who earned a BFA with an emphasis in ceramics from Eastern Kentucky University.
Lyndsey describes the work by saying, “Somewhere between animal and human in their physical appearance, the imagery in my work is inspired by how we communicate our physical needs and psychological states. Visually interpreting our outwardly expressed emotions, becomes a language explaining what we are going through, what we think, or how we feel. Physical body language seen in an animal’s ear posture and bird’s feathers give my figures a way to speak without making a sound. These additional features metaphorically relate to my own maternal experiences as a mother of a child who has autism. My child’s symptoms are similar to the many who are challenged with this disability, such as an absence of spoken language, eye contact, social skills and physical communication gestures.”
