Carter Burden Gallery presents On the Wall featuring Lynn Gall. The reception will be held October 6, 2016 from 6 - 8 p.m. The exhibition runs from October 6th through 27th at 548 West 28th Street in New York City. The gallery hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Lynn Gall’s installation consists of two large works on paper in the gallery space On the Wall. The artist began to prepare for the exhibition by filling two sketchbooks with ideas and by reviewing older notebooks. Inspired by the Surrealist artists of the 20th Century, Gall created automatic drawings. This method is a means for the subconscious to be expressed as the hand creates marks and moves unsystematically. In the black and white drawing Mind Map, Gall has created lines and shapes that reference an island in the sky with trees, birds and bridges. Zowie! Zanapers! consists of colorful shapes and distinguishable objects in a circular format. The objects reference faces, creatures, and plants culled from dreams, prehistoric rock drawings, and writing systems. The installation of the two drawings transports the viewer to the surreal landscape of the artist’s imagination.
