Exhibition by Whitney Lynn
Whitney Lynn. Artwork exhibited in Sirens, Silencers, Mufflers, and Mutes. Bass & Reiner Gallery, San Francisco, California. May 29, 2019 – July 13, 2019.

Quote from the webpage for this solo exhibition:

For the last seven years Whitney Lynn’s conceptual practice has focused on the idea of traps. Beginning with devices designed to deceive in order to apprehend, such as fishing lures and hunting decoys, the work eventually morphed to deal with historical and mythological femme fatales. In her newest project this interest has manifested in investigations of Sirens, both the creatures from Classical antiquity and the modern apparatus for signaling impending danger.
