New York artist Ann Lindberg creates images by using an architect’s parallel bar to draw tightly spaced lines of varying darkness and density. The result is a beautiful effect of speed at the hand of a careful and repetitive process, similar to the blur of a camera in motion, something Lindberg acknowledges in the title, Motion Drawing 11 (Green). A 2011 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors grantee, Anne Lindberg recently had solo installations at the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno; Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; Drawing Center, New York; Bom Retiro Cultural Center, São Paulo; and the Tegnerforbundet, Oslo.
