Erik Lindman's artistic practice is defined by his innovative use of found materials such as shards of steel or canvas webbing as central elements in his paintings, allowing the built-up surface to direct the development of the work. In addition to his paintings, Lindman explores his fascination with materials and form through sculpture and work on paper. His sculptures investigate a sequential series of viewpoints, each dissimilar and separate from the next, providing a three-dimensional counterpart to the layered surfaces of his paintings. Similarly, his works on paper—often drawings of negative space between things that he encounters such as clouds or leaves—serve as an extension of his painting practice where he experiments with light and composition in a more improvisatory manner. In total, Lindman’s open-ended oeuvre invites viewers to both question and reaffirm the distinct possibilities of abstraction for his own generation.
Helian is Lindman's second solo exhibition with the gallery and will be on view at 176 Grand Street, New York through January 20, 2024.
