The LR Collaborative

Yvonne Love and Gabrielle Russomagno have been collaborating on sculptural installations since the mid '00s. The LR Collaborative is the newest partnership in their long history of art making that materializes the complexity of personal and societal narratives.  

Their current work is a return to their inaugural 2007 collaboration, Hot Topic: Meditations on Global Warming. The exhibition was designed as a call to action and focused on the science of shrinking polar ice caps, the catastrophic loss of perma-frost, monster storms, and drought. In 2017 they pivoted the focus of their art work, returning to that subject matter, as the confluence of the political environment, hastening climate change, extreme weather, and the decimation of wildlife demanded urgent attention.
