ARTIST STATEMENT—LYNNE HULL
My sculpture and installations provide shelter, food, water or space for wildlife, as eco-atonement for their loss of habitat to human encroachment. My current projects link communities from Canada to South America through our shared wildlife. Some raise human awareness of our trans-species relationship and harmonious ways to live that relationship in the landscape. While assisting wildlife, when possible projects are also designed with components of sustainable economic development for humans. Research and consultation are essential to project success. I prefer direct collaboration with wildlife specialists, environmental interpreters, landscape architects, and local people for design integration. Most artworks function in the temporal gap between the time reclamation of damaged sites begins and the time nature recovers.

I believe that the creativity of artists can be applied to real world problems and can have an effect on urgent social and environmental issues. I am increasingly aware that the greatest challenge faced by other species is the need for change in human values and attitudes toward conflicting rights, wants, and needs. I hope my work offers models for equitable solutions.

The Artist Quotes

“Hull’s empathies are in a sense kinesthetic, even visceral. Raised in the west, and always having lived there, she comes easily to considering large spaces, migration patterns, the habits of different species. She puts her sculpture at the service of wildlife, predicting their needs (with the expert help of biologists and other scientists) and projecting aid into sculptural form. Her work interacts with the place in which it is located, which is determined by context, calling attention to itself only after it has been integrated into layers of natural life. As wildlife is inseparable from its habitat, her sculpture cannot be seen as form alone. At the same time, if it could not be seen at all by those of us who look around for esthetic sustenance, it would not be art. She works in the tension between what is good for animals, birds, reptiles, and what looks good to humans.”—Lucy Lippard, THE NATURAL ORDER

“ Lynne Hull’s unique ecological artistic projects pioneer the creation of new models for trans-species cultural exchanges, bio-diverse dialogues, and eco-communal relationships. She is mending western civilization’s split between human and non-human nature by conferring on the human artist the role of curator of the Earth’s living art gallery….Lynne Hull is advancing a new artistic and mythic paradigm. In the new myth the woman artist is not expelled from The Garden, but she is invited to restore the Garden, and in doing so, to reveal the interspecies communal harmony that comes to life as human and non-human healing capacities are reunited through the collaborative powers of art and the mysterious alchemy of the generosity of the creative spirit.” —Gloria Feman Orenstein

” . . . (as ecofeminist artist) Lynne began achieving a reputation as a serious designer …whose structures take their places as healing sites; her works are akin to a profound apology to the beasts and birds for the organic devastation modern urban life has visited on them…She is attempting to communicate as friend and sister of the various species that will use her…work… tries to cross the divide of human language and speak to another obligation: to inform species who can only respond by using the sites, that even we human beings know we cannot make it much longer if we are the only species left standing…
In the balancing act between aspiration and practicality Hull must perform each time she is commissioned to create a new site, her work keeps trying to break through our limitations and, like those ancient shamanic artisans whose works spoke to the intricate web of circumstances and consciousness, signal the species with which we share this space that at least one artist wants to resume the dialog we once enjoyed.—–Ronald J. Vierling, “Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind” Landscape & Art, Summer 2003

“Hull’s work is a matter of process and engagement rather than market product, with focus on strategy and a defiance of mainstream artistic authority replaced by an authority of spirit and confidence in purpose. It is a fervent expression of joy or praise for the natural world. She belongs to a community of activist artists who engage in an artistic intervention on behalf of the sustenance of life” —Ken Bloom, Texas Text

“Hull’s goal in making art is not to alter the environment, but to create an aesthetic that stands out against the foreground of its location, while also fitting into the surrounding ecology.
Other common threads that run through her work are a deft, scientifically sound comprehension of nature and an awareness of those who need help the most.” — Simone Ellis, Public Art Review

“For an artist to intentionally collaborate with other species to create lovely, nurturing and useful art, is extremely rare….For the sake of both the damaged environment, and the sometimes directionless world of art, we…are glad Hull showed up…”—Simone Ellis, Intermountain Woman

“Lynne Hull wants to restructure the stories people tell about their place in nature. Her artwork nurtures a multispecies dialogue” —Peter Warshall, Whole Earth

“Ecofeminism considers the arts to be essential catalysts of Change”—Gloria Orenstein

“contemporary artists recognize landscape not as scenery, but as the spaces and systems we inhabit, a system our lives depend on”…the artist has become a collaborator or midwife, working in harmony with the land” —Rebecca Solnit

“Hull’s prolific body of work is a gesture towards the nurturance of endangered species”…
“Counterparts to the artists of the paleolithic, the handprints of today’s ecofeminist artists are also inscribed directly on the earth in the work they do to restore the wasteland and return it to its cycle of flowering.” Orenstein, Greening of Gaia

“Hull’s pieces seem to be totems to the interaction between the animal and human communities…Hull uses her art to involve people in the environmental issues they might not otherwise be concerned about, potentially setting the stage for future interaction between humans and nature. (Her sculptures) challenge people to think about the daily cycles and events that occur in nature and our lives…..Hull asks us to inspect the daily cycles of other animals in nature. Her creation of special places for these animals demands that we think about them in different terms, not to relegate them to the role of unseen and unheard, but to view their lives as active, integral parts of ours, with specific needs and routines, not at all unlike the human communities….Explor(ing) the relationships that exist between nature, community, and art…..
The artists create work that alludes to the past, and glorifies the ongoing cycles that have been passes down through time—by nature, by human families, by wildlife….genuinely concerned about helping all of us understand the environment in which we live, and in exploring new ways to experience the rhythms and cycles that exist…..(the) Work (is) life affirming in this age of global destruction…..(validating) ongoing cycles that affirm the ability of the earth to continue on, and the ability of human and animal communities to maintain…” —”Wendy Bredehoft, MFA thesis

“Lynne Hull’s most avid fans are the wildlife her art helps” —Catharine Walkinshaw

“The urgencies before us are demanding that the old schismatic energy of modernism give way to a more healing energy of reconciliation. A new sensitivity is emerging at the leading edges of our culture that comprehends our interdependence and is willing to try to grow attuned to it…Lynne Hull (exemplifies) another kind of art, that speaks to the power of connectedness, art that calls us into relationship”—-Suzi Gablik, ART JOURNAL

“A new art form which incorporates solid scientific experimentation to address habitat restoration… Ecoartists appear to me as messengers and roving spirits who call out to our souls and our creative imaginations for the rehabilitation of earth and sacred life that must occur if we are to survive. They point to means as well as the need…
These stories are not of a lonely action in a studio, but of the application of the artist’s skills, passion, and knowledge addressing the physical and spiritual needs of specific contemporary life. Like the energy that ripples out from an object dropped into water, the artist drops thoughts and actions into the pool of an immediate life situation. They ripple out into known and unknown expressions, energized by service, which is motivated by love and care. This, surely, is the lever for evolving the spiritual human being, committed to justice and sharing in the relationships among all beings and earth forms…..
Service is an inherent impulse. Love is expressed in service, and quite simply, love for something is the (motivating) power of the artist’s work. It is also a magnet, drawing other people toward the same kind of expression”— Jo Hanson (about several women ecoartists), EARTHLIGHT

“HER prolific body of work is a gesture towards the nurturance of endangered species…”
—Gloria Orenstein

“Hull’s work raises hard questions, it elevates consciousness, and it asks people to move out of their customary patterns of thought and of behaviour. It pushes the envelope. It will not leave people the same as before they began the work together (in a community participation project). Most radical is her trans-species idea—if people begin to take seriously that other species have needs different from the human, they are really confronted with that idea, then they are changes and will fundamentally alter their perceptions and perspectives on many issues. Once they recognize the truth of it, their position in the world changes, and they must move over, and share the planet. They cannot return to their previous mind-set that the earth is for humans to use and abuse. Once they create a habitat for other species, they are making the profound admission that humans are not at the centre of the planet’s life”—
Hull’s idea is bold: it suggests that participating in such an aesthetic experience (a workshop) is so powerful that it can change attitudes, beliefs and cognitions that have developed over a lifetime. I feel that the experience is so profound the participants’ thinking and feeling is fundamentally and permanently altered by the impact of their experience and the insight they gain.
Those who engage in ecological art—either as viewer or participant in its making—are no longer able to quietly ignore the environmental consequences of their actions. They come to realize, directly and personally, what suffering ecological damage can cause. They also know that they can create aesthetic work to improve the ecological habitat for species that surround them. Other species go from being foreign to being familiar. Nature goes from being distant to being a close friend. The idea of improving the ecological community goes from improving the ecological community goes from being an idea in the mind to a calling in the heart. We feel guilty, inspired, outraged, dedicated, aware, passionate, and perhaps most importantly, engaged and capable of creating important change.” —Young Imm Kang Song, The International Journal of Art & Design
