DESCRIPTION

Togonon Gallery is pleased to present Ted Lincoln in his first solo exhibition.

Lincoln’s paintings explore contemporary themes by utilizing ancient Chinese ink techniques coupled with modern and often technology-based materials, including aluminum paneling and aircraft epoxy. He takes a traditional method and combines industrialized materials to take the technique to a different level. Recalling the outdoors and the peaceful swamp imagery of his childhood in South Florida, Lincoln depicts a classical depiction that the viewer can identify and expounds upon the medium.

Initially a representational painter, Lincoln changed to abstractions when he learned the Sumi ink technique in China derived from the Pomo method, adapted by the monk Wong Mo during the T’iang Dynasty (618-906 AD). Showing a strong command of his process, Lincoln’s use of abstraction is a tool to comment on our substitution of technology for experiences of nature.

Ted Lincoln obtained his BFA from The San Francisco Art Institute in 2000.  He lives and works in South Florida.
