Mehr Gallery is pleased to present the paintings of Sally Ross and of Annabel Linquist in a two-person show opening May 17 through June 16, 2007, with special guest DJ Barron spinning 80s throwback on Thursday, May 17, 6-9pm.
“New York really sounded different when I first moved here twenty years ago and Canal St. where I live still has some of that sound/feeling going. This painting is a kind of visual synesthesia of that.”
The second part of this series will be shown at Mario Diacono Fine Art in Boston. Sally was included in Nature Morte last year, curated by Bob Nickas and Mitchell Algus, and Between the Spaces at KS Art, and has shown at Massimo Audiello Fine Art in two solo exhibitions. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, The New York Times, and The New Yorker.
Annabel Linquist’s prior Flux Compression paintings are a layered progression: she works on thirty or more pieces simultaneously, with the goal of developing a sophisticated painting ecology where the body of work feeds itself. Through this process, Linquist aims to push the perceptual boundaries of time, and establish a form of timeless production flux. Linquist refers to her work as ‘highly calibrated alchemical configurations’.
Born in 1980, Annabel Linquist spent her formative years on a farm in British Columbia. She studied visual and performing arts until she moved to Bar Harbor, Maine to pursue a Bachelors Degree in human ecology. In 2004 she graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts Degree from Parsons School of Design.
