About Duo

Lin Emery says, “Duo was conceived as a counterpart to an urban environment — an attempt to recapture the joy of nature in a cityscape. The petals, rimmed in red, are abstracted from remembered flowers while their giant scale can relate to the architectural masses that may surround them. The stalks are intended to appear to rise directly from the ground in the way a blade of grass sprouts from the earth. Wind currents activate the petals in a slow dance, evoking the movement of the natural world.” The colorful large-scale aluminum sculptures stand in memorial to Olga Wolosyn, the late Mayor of Englewood. The two pieces enhance MOA’s collection of public sculpture, and contribute to their growing attention to kinetic art. The Emery addition not only adds to the stature of the collection, but also reinforces the importance of our civic leaders. As each piece of the sculpture moves, it reminds the viewer of the temporal nature of life and the constant changes that interrupt and complicate, yet stimulate the world we live in. Lin Emery studied art at the Sculpture Center, New York and Ossip Zadkine, Paris. She lives and works in New Orleans, LA. Her artwork is part of many national corporate, private, and public art collections, and she exhibits her sculpture internationally.
