For more than thirty years, Anne Lindberg has exhibited her visually arresting drawings and immersive thread installations in venues across the United States and internationally, including Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Drawing Center, U.S. Consulate General Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, SESCA Bom Retiro Sao Paulo, The Rachofsky Collection, and Contemporary Art Center Cincinnati, among numerous others.
In her new book, she asks ‘Why is color so powerful?’ For her the answer begins with the body. In works that range from site-specific ‘drawings in space’ made from fine chromatic thread to large-scale drawings of graphite and colored pencil, Lindberg generates experiences that transcend language, slow time, and tap into something at the core of us, with the belief that a kind of alchemy can exist in everyday life.
As Jeffrey Kastner, writer and Senior Editor of Cabinet magazine, writes in his essay entitled "Linear Perspectives," ‘That in the works’ shifts from 2D to 3D, we are not being shown two things, no matter how related they might be, but are instead being guided by the artist to resituate ourselves in order to fully understand the one thing we’re looking at—nothing less than energetic exchange between matter and space that shapes our experience in and of the natural world.’
