One Year Edit
Opening: March 11, 2011, 6-9pm
Golden Age is pleased to present One Year Edit, a selection of recent work from Erik Lindman. At the forefront of a new generation of painters, Lindman’s works are explorations of material gesture. For his exhibition at Golden Age the artist will be showing an installation of four sophisticated abstract paintings.
Each is constructed of cast-offs from other paintings coalescing into unique works through planned interventions and incidental over-sprays, drips and mistakes. As the paintings are both industrial and traditional in substance, consisting of luan, maple, sheetrock paper, oil, latex and rabbit-skin glue, the diverse nature of the artist’s supports and enamels become apparent immediately. His precise considerations allow for stunning surfaces to intertwine with delicate, formal compositions.
Erik Lindman (b. 1985, New York, NY) has previously exhibited at Ribordy Contemporary, Geneva; West Street Gallery, New York; V&A, New York and The Armory Fair with the Swiss Institute of Contemporary Art. Lindman has an upcoming solo-exhibition at Hannah Barry Gallery (London, England). Lindman’s work has been written about in Flash Art Online, Modern Painters, Artforum.com and he produces the publication Drywall, now in it’s fourth issue. He received his BA from Columbia University in 2007. He lives and works in New York City.
