Erik Lindman is a conceptual artist concerned with the culling and reinterpretation of residual objects cast aside during the creative process. Sometimes taking portions of failed paintings or destroyed fragments left around the studio, he creates mixed-media paintings and collage, working intuitively and spontaneously. “It ends up becoming positive in a way, instead of nihilistic. It’s the way this leftover stuff becomes the material.” Rejecting notions of finished (“post-studio”) work, he is fascinated with the possibilities that exist within the studio experience.
