Lyndsey Fryman

b. Paris, KY

Lives and works in Lexington, KY

Selected Works

Up until I was eleven years old, I grew up mostly overseas in Germany. Living my childhood within a foreign culture that is steeped in history, folklore and public art; shaped my visual vocabulary as an adult.


As a mother of two boys, one who has autism, my artistic process is inspired  by children, animals and rural culture.  Children challenge me to see through a new perspective, one that leaves behind the preconceived expectations about motherhood and childhood. As I watch my children discovering the natural world, it reawakens my child-like perspective when everything was new and still waiting to be discovered and explained.  These sculptures are conceived through a wide range of emotions, which are heavily influenced by the young child’s form. In my pieces, I try to imply the unnoticed, misunderstood, and obvious instances of our human nature through empathetic visual cues. The work engages the viewer in an unspoken dialogue that spurs a curiosity, and concern for others.
