Anne Lilly

Kinetic Sculpture

Kinetic sculptor Anne Lilly uses carefully engineered motion to shift and manipulate our perception of time and space. Her highly ordered and precisely constructed interactive sculptures move in strikingly organic, fluid and mesmeric ways. They are usually fabricated in machined stainless steel, but require the viewer's touch to initiate movement: pressing clinical qualities against the sensuous response of each piece. Lilly was the 2012 artist-in-residence at the Art Institute of Boston, and in 2011 was awarded the Blanche E. Colman award. Her work was included in the 2007 DeCordova Museum Annual Exhibition, has been collected by the DeCordova Museum, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Middlebury College Museum of Art, and is held in corporate and private collections internationally.
