Kansas City-based artist Anne Lindberg builds room-sized installations made from thousands of strands of threads suspended from the wall. Taking into consideration each unique space and its light sources, Lindberg painstakingly maps out the precise angles and extensions which will create the seamless gradients in the radiating works. In one of the pieces, Raume Yellow, over 25 miles of Egyptian cotton thread was used.
Lindberg explains, “I’ve come to understand my work as a kind of self-portraiture. Within the quiet reserve and formal abstraction is a strong impulse to speak from a deep place within myself about that which is private, vulnerable, fragile, and perceptive to the human condition. My work is a mirror of how I experience the world and as I negotiate physicality, optics and ideas through drawing languages, my voice withholds, blurs, teases and veils.”
