Anne Lindberg: walking as I stand

Carrie Secrist Gallery

Reviewed by Tom Pekovitch

Anne Lindberg builds compositions with a Taoist mentality. The rhythmic repetition of vertical lines in her show at Carrie Secrist, "walking as I stand," creates a striking phosphorescence.

Without diverging from what she does best, Lindberg has extended her reach with the addition of colored pencil to her typically grisaille palette of graphite. The works shimmer like fractals of light emanating from a gem as it is held up to the sun.

Six large drawings illuminate the wall, calling for contemplation, enticed further by a gorgeous wooden bench spanning the space. The flow of the exhibition acts much like the works themselves, pushing and pulling from the boundaries to middle and back again, through ledges and valleys, forged by Lindberg’s glimmering color relationships.

Lindberg alchemizes fragments of Agnes Martin and shards of her own original splendor into an enveloping experience. I eagerly await to see what she concocts next in her laboratory.
