Loryn Bertoti, a mixed-media artist with a background in engineering and fabrication, is Assemble’s April Unblurred artist.
Loryn’s exhibition for the April show will be a large tessellating pattern of two main elements. The first is laser cut wood, and the second is hand-made aluminum can flowers. The overall theme is springtime, and a celebration of the new beauty that is soon to emerge in nature – flowers, vibrant colors, bees, etc. Most of the material used in this piece, as well as my previous work, will be recycled. The wooden pieces in the tessellation will be intricately cut and illuminated to mimic the bright colors and patterns found in nature. The mixture of the two materials organic and inorganic (wood and aluminum), is Loryn’s favorite way to simplify and represent the beauty in the world around us.
“The spring time inspires me to spend more time outside; gardening, creating, and cleaning up anything left behind over winter that may prevent new growth (litter, old crops, etc). I often find the garbage I collect to be a source of inspiration to create recycled artwork. Therefore, the aluminum flower will be a key feature in the installation at Assemble.”
