New York artist Ann Lindberg renders abstract 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, an effect Lindberg makes present in Parallel 22. Lindberg states that her “drawings inhabit a non-verbal place resonant with such primal human conditions. Systemic and non-representational, these works are subtle, rhythmic, abstract, and immersive. I find beauty and disturbance through shifts in tool, layering and material to create passages of tone, density, speed, path and frequency within a system.” 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.
