About Israel Lund

Israel Lund produces paintings, prints, and zines that traffic in abstract imagery. For one series of untitled images, Lund used a truncated silkscreen process on raw canvas, cutting rectangles into his screen and manipulating it with a squeegee and acrylic paint to create pixelated images that look like blown-up photocopies. Lund has created numerous zines, such as Some, But Not All, of My Clothes, in which he pulled together a collection of Xeroxed images of his laundry. “I love images, but I also love the physicality of the container. That’s just as important to me,” he has said.

American, b. 1980, Bellow Falls, Vermont, based in Brooklyn, New York
