Erik Lindman

Cut, paste, staple, tear, reassemble: it is around the act and process that Erik Lindman’s works are elaborated. Working with existing elements—waste, objects of the studio, pieces of works abandoned—all signs of the creative act, he uses the defects of the canvas and "failures" as a spring of its creativity. These paintings include an important part of historical abstraction, of which they are freed and that they replay in a complete freedom.

Lindman has had solo exhibitions at Almine Rech in Paris and Ribordy Contemporary in Geneva. His work has been included in group shows at Fri Art in Fribourg, L&M, Los Angeles, and Bortolami in New York.
