Lynn Silverman: Lookout

Lynn Silverman, Lookout #16, 1998-2012, Black and white gelatin silver print, 20 x 24 inches (framed)

Lynn Silverman presents black and white photographs of windows in United States, Great Britain, Australia, and the Czech Republic, countries where she has lived for extended periods of time. “Lookout” is a collection of observations into how we live in proximity to other people and nature, and how we strike a balance between the desire for contact, concern for security, and our need for privacy. Her minimal compositions place the window at the center. It functions as both a transparent boundary and an opening between inside and outside.

About the Artist: Lynn Silverman received her BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths’ College in London, England. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Australia, and the United States. Past projects include Furniture Fictions, 1:1, Corporation House, and Interior Light. In addition to publishing four books, her work may be found in public and private collections in Australia, US, and Great Britain. In 2010, she was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to teach and photograph in the Czech Republic. Recently her work was exhibited at Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, and Goya Contemporary Art in Baltimore, Maryland. Since 1999, she has taught photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. lynnsilverman.com
