TRUE NORTH opens @ LABspace Saturday, April 7th from 4-7pm in Hillsdale, NY

TRUE NORTH opens at LABspace this Saturday, April 7th, 4-7pm

LABspace is pleased to invite you to the opening reception of True North, an exhibition and happening organized by Julie Torres. True North is a survey and celebration of upstate NY and surrounding area artists who are connected and engaged at the local level— professionally and socially in real time, IRL.

By mapping out this vast visual record of area art makers we hope to strengthen and expand our community, and bring focus to the exciting work being made close to home. True North is a show about connecting, expanding and transcending physical spaces. Area artist and curator Julie Torres will wallpaper the walls with small works on paper from nearly 200 area artists, and those who have been active at LABspace via past exhibits and events. All work on view has been selected with artist-friendly pricing in mind.

On view in True North:
Adie Russell, Adrian Meraz, Aïcha S. Woods, Alex Gingrow, Alexander Ross, Alison Fox, Allison Hester, Alyssa E.

the long sun, a solo exhibition of new work by Anne Lindberg opens at CAM Raleigh, February 2, 2018

the long sun, a solo exhibition of new work by Anne Lindberg opens at the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, NC on Friday February 2, and runs through June 10, 2018

“Is honey the living equivalent of gold? Supposing one tried to give temperatures to colors. In a sense, we do it all the time when talking about warm and cool ones. A certain Red is 98 degrees C, Ultramarine is 7 degrees C, Cobalt Blue is -10 degrees C etc. Maybe yellow is the one color which is body temperature 37 degrees C. And so, the ancient Egyptians believed it was the color of immortality. You are struck by the fact that yellow is never regular, it’s varied. As you say it stores and reflects light, but it receives and gives off waves
which are not constant – as though its surface is liquid rather than solid.
And this irregularity reminds us of living skin…of a body.”

From I Send You This Cadmium Red – a correspondence between
writer John Berger and John Christie

Barcelona : ACTAR, in collaboration with MALM 2000

Anne Lindberg’s new solo exhibition the long sun brings light, materiality and rhythm to ruminations on the sun in context, eliciting qualities that are optical and spatial, emotional and tangential.

Lindberg cites a long tradition of the relationship of deep thinking and creating to time spent walking – connecting this practice to Henri Rousseau, William Wordsworth, Robert Walser and Virginia Woolf.  the long sun expounds on the seamless relationship between the pace of her step and the evolution of the work in both two and three dimensions. Thousands of lines are pulled across a pliant mat board and cast between walls while walking. This work carries with it a quiet reserve, emotional power, and formal abstraction, building a gradient light, with a slow and telling use of tone to find meaning.

Lindberg studio time is a paced and daily conversation with place, in body and mind. From her studio in the Hudson River Valley, elements of light, space, and time coalesce from this understanding. As this work generates fundamental questions about time, causality and sequence, Lindberg speaks in an essential way to the human condition. the long sun presents a visual and bodily experience that conjoins personal and abstract voices with a sense that alchemy can exist in everyday life.

Below are images of the drawings - installation shots will be added as soon as the custom work is completed in the gallery (week of January 25 - Feb 1)


Denman Maroney performed within my exhibition "fold and unfold" at the Omi International Art Center

On Saturday evening March 12, Denman Maroney performed within my exhibition "fold and unfold" at the Omi International Art Center to a rapt audience. Using his signature hyper-piano style, Denman offered an interpretive meditation on the work. He encouraged the audience to walk around and come up to see how he was altering the instrument to create unique sounds and movements.

Here are a few videos:
