The Elizabeth Harris Gallery is pleased to present “Industry,” an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Greg Lindquist. This will be the artist's first one person exhibition with the gallery.
The Gallery is located at 529 West 20th Street , 6 th floor, and is open Tuesday through Saturday 11–6 pm. There will be a reception for the artist on Thursday, February 7, from 6-8 pm.
Lindquist's work explores landscape as a memorial. A picture of a landscape is never simply a view. As a painting, a landscape is a physical fact and work of the mind. In viewing a landscape, an internal ethos is projected onto a perception of external environment. This exhibition documents Brooklyn's industrial past and future residential growth, depicting specific sites of building and decay in the present Williamsburg and Redhook waterfront. As American manufacturing has moved overseas, these unused warehouse buildings and structures—icons of the industrial revolution— have been transformed/reclaimed by luxury. The paintings balance a graphic sensibility with painterly animation and a subdued palette. Inspired by construction materials, Lindquist recently has begun to use a range of metallic pigments in his palette and has begun to paint on stainless steel panels.
Greg Lindquist received a dual masters degree in fine arts in painting and art history from Pratt Institute in 2007. Lindquist lives and works in Greenpoint, Brooklyn .
