Harlow's works in Hey Sunshine continue her reductive exploration of light, color and material, placing added emphasis on the behavior of light in relation to color and space. The exhibition includes a combination of fine art and commercial materials that were employed for their inherent physical characteristics: the expansive glow of fluorescent Plexiglas, the subtle movement of vinyl curtain, the delicate translucency of sheer fabric. They are arranged in seemingly austere formal combinations, but each piece surpasses the formal to generate visual experiences that extend beyond the works themselves and into their surrounding space.
Lynne Harlow has exhibited her work nationally and internationally for the past 15 years, including in the United States, Mexico, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Her work was recently included in the 2013 deCordova Biennial at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA. Her additional museum exhibitions include MoMA PS1 (New York, NY); Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (Ithaca, NY); Brattleboro Museum and Art Center (Brattleboro, VT); and Instituto de Artes Gráficas de Oaxaca (Oaxaca, Mexico).
