Press
Lynelle Forrest is a Palm Beach-based artist whose work has percolated in the local underground for years and just now is breaking through to mainstream recognition. Her studio reflects her hyperactive mind, its surfaces strewn with the tools of her trade and her aesthetic preferences, from sculptural files and scrapers and a mini Apple computer to wonderful design books—Miami architecture, Japanese pop culture–and pin-up calendars. Out of this ferment comes work of elegance and depth, with a recurring interest in multiple perspectives—visual, psychological, technological and existential.
