Biography Paul Lincoln
British born and living in New York from 1986, Paul Lincoln is a sculptor who creates mixed-media sculptures that combine a vast array of objects and are amusing for their excessive complexity.
One reviewer divided his work into two types: "small aesthetic 'amuse-bouches' and large-scale, labyrinthine cosmologies" (ARTforum 8/2000). In the former group would be his so-called labor saving device, "Ginsmaid," that dispenses gin and tonics when an image of a 40s movie star is pressed. An example of the large-scale object would be "New York-New York," whereby a ringing phone triggers four generators that light up glass coils that in turn activate a reflecting pool forty-feet long.
