“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.”

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. The result carries a quiet reserve, emotional power, and formal abstraction, building a gradient light, with a slow and telling use of tone to find meaning.

Lindberg’s 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.
