Lynne Russillo - “Phoenix Rising”

Virginia-based artist Lynne Russillo started her career working with bikes in the ‘70s as a mechanic, which inspired her to start using bike wheels to make sculptures. Unlike other artists who weld their bike sculptures together, Lynne just uses tension to hold her works of art in place, much like how a bike wheel functions. One of her bike wheel creations is called “Phoenix Rising,” which features a metal bird perched inside a bicycle gear and was named after the source of her materials, the Phoenix Bikes shop in Alexandria, VA.
