In this new body of work for Peak Gallery Lyn Carter continues to work with forms that are possible within the limits and potential of cloth as a constructed skin. Working with sewing as a gendered activity, Carter aims to make "women's work" sculpture. The sculptures are formed by the way the cloth sections are cut and sewn. Weight is not experienced through mass, though gravity is felt. The monumental is revised both by the materials used and by the forms suggested, yet the work still probes our understanding of the physical world through sculptural means: weight and lightness, scale, suspension, gravity and elevation.
