Anne Lindberg’s sculpture and drawings inhabit an unspoken place. Systemic and non-representational, her works are subtle, rhythmic, abstract, and immersive. She finds beauty and disturbance through shifts in the densities of her controlled graphite line, layering the medium to realize surprising passages of tone, density, speed, path and frequency. At scale, her room-sized drawing installations offer an optical and spatial phenomenon that excites and confuses the eye – a tremendous degree of power elicited from the simplicity of line.
Lindberg’s work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad including the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, The Drawing Center, Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, the Dennos Museum; Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, University of Nebraska; the Belger Art Center, and Meadows Gallery, University of Texas, as well as venues in New Zealand, Canada and Japan.
Lindberg has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors, most notably the Charlotte Street Foundation Award; two ArtsKC Fund Inspiration Grant; and a Mid-America/National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. She was Visiting Artist-in-Residence/Head of Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan in 2005 and taught for nine years at the Kansas City Art Institute. Anne Lindberg received her BFA from Miami University, Oxford, OH in 1985 and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy, Bloomfield Hills, MI, in 1988.
