Anders Bergstrom and Ruth Lingen | Double Life

On View: April 16 – May 11, 2019
Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 16, 6 – 8pm

 

Planthouse is pleased to present, Double Life, two concurrent solo shows of new works by Anders Bergstrom and Ruth Lingen opening Tuesday, April 16, from 6-8pm. The exhibition will be on view through May 11, 2019.

 

Anders Bergstrom: Double Life

Completed in 2019, these unique works are a combination of soft ground etching and simultaneous color viscosity monotype. For Bergstrom this new process of viscosity printing was challenging and inspiring, setting in motion a productive moment in his practice. The process offered a freedom to be spontaneous, and the resulting series of prints and objects break new ground for the artist’s work.

Bergstom’s subject, the common brown bag, is familiar to the artist and those who know his work. But there is now a more playful, less reality-based result, allowing this new series to be more colorful, painterly, and thought-provoking.

In representing this common object in modern life, the brown bag, these works are strange and familiar. They inspire thought and wonder at what may have lead up to the moment it was found, pinned, splashed, stained or otherwise altered into its current state. This subject can be interpreted through different lenses: contemporary artifact, utility design object, garbage, ready-made, memory, street detritus, lunch sack, environmental concerns or societal connotations.

About the artist:

Anders Bergstrom (1971) was born in Tucson, Arizona and has a Bachelor of Arts, Sociology and Fine Arts from the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ. Currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Bergstrom’s work is held in the collections of The New York Public Library, University of New Hampshire, Beinecke Library at Yale University, Smith College Museum of Art, MA and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Ruth Lingen: Double Life

All of the works in Double Life, by Ruth Lingen, involve hand-set type and letterpress; some of them are combined with lithography and handmade paper.

Although typically her subject matter is based in language, often with a historical reference, some of these new works are photo-based and were inspired by the Women’s March in New York City, 2018. This series of political works aspire to be commemorative, encouraging documentation and inspiration.

About the artist:

Ruth Lingen lives and works in New York City, and she is the director of Line Press Limited, a studio in Brooklyn dedicated to handmade books and prints. In addition, she is a consultant at Pace Prints. Lingen’s work is held in the permanent collections of The New York Public Library, The Getty Research Institute, Walker Art Center, University of Wisconsin, Nelson-Atkins Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Library of Congress, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the St. Louis Art Museum.

Recent exhibitions include Pulled in Brooklyn, International Print Center New York, NY and Victory Garden and Proof, Planthouse, New York, NY.
