Lyndsey Fryman is an artist based in Kentucky with a BFA in ceramics from Eastern Kentucky University. Her practice is informed by her experience as the mother of an autistic child, and is concerned with alternatives to verbal communication. In her words, “Somewhere between animal and human in ... 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[s] my figures a way to speak without making a sound."
