Wendy Lindbergh

Luminous Ground
 the shared field


December 10 - 31, 2016

Opening reception for the artist
Saturday, December 10  6:00 - 8:00 PM

 
Please join us for the opening of Wendy Lindbergh's solo exhibition of recent paintings, Luminous Ground:  the shared field. The artist will be at the opening reception from her home in Ireland.

What began as a tribute to the song of the Swainson's Thrush - "a haunting rising spiral of sound that echoes through the now-diminishing forests of (her) childhood in the West" - evolved into an exploration of light, color and form, ranging in subjects as diverse as birds and landscapes, sea and sky, pebbles, droplets of water, jelly beans and rubber bands, not to mention plastic scissors. 

Two ravens - the brilliant, glistening Autumn Raven* and the blue-black Raven in Snow - become the centerpieces of the exhibition - both in scale and rendering - while the smaller paintings (as small as 4 x 4 and 7 1/2 and 6 inches) remain luminous points of stillness and mystery. Lindbergh, who learned to gild while doing a decorative project, often uses gold and silver leaf - eleven of the paintings here have one or the other - and explains her attraction to the precious metals: "All metals return light to our eyes in a way that creates a sense of space. Each metal has different qualities. I think gold is a sort of serotonin booster. Silver, however, both warm and clear, can be a place of few interferences."
