Lyndal Osborne’s sculptures and installations have developed an individual approach that utilizes found and recycled material that she alters through the application of color, manipulating their original shape, and/or by placing the objects in new contexts so they develop new metaphorical meaning. Her installation work speaks of the forces of transformation within nature, as well as commenting upon pressing issues relating to the environment. In her work Osborne has focused on an examination of the issues of genetically modified organisms and more recently on the crisis in the global oceans.
