Linda King Ferguson
Open Equivalence 1 - acrylic on cut linen with cotton thread -Abstract Geometric

2019

$2,700

About

In this sculptural piece, Linda King Ferguson has cut a piece of linen canvas into a half-diamond shape, with an ellipsis cut-out close to the scalloped right edge. A red cotton thread completes the second half of the diamond shape, then hangs from the bottom corner, evoking the image of a kite. King Ferguson's paintings are abstractions of the female body. She chooses to use linen because of its "skin-like quality" when painted. When asked about the inspiration for this piece she stated, "Almost all of the works in this exhibition were made during the pandemic and over this past year with the tensions of isolation that hampers and strains our social relationships. These conditions give a very specific context to making and art production in this time. I couldn’t help but focus on empirical geometry. A geometry that is a dynamic of the forms (architecture) we inhabit and which organizes our phenomenological experience of spatial distance. The Open Equivalence works collapse the distance between painting and the wall, expanding their spatial forms through the impermanence of the cotton threads. In these works distance and space is thinned and expanded, as our personal footprint of 6 feet of social distance requires us for health." Linda King Ferguson lives and works in Munising, MI and Nashville, TN. She is in residence semi-annually in Brooklyn, NY. She has a MA from Rhode Island School of Design, and received an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She also has studied at Academia Di Belle Arti in Perugia, Italy, and Penland School of Crafts. Ferguson has been awarded several art residencies including Ragdale and The Morris Graves Foundation and exhibited widely, including the exhibitions, Fiber Optics, Minus Space, Brooklyn, NY and Stomach Acid Reflux. This painting is featured in a gallery show that will end in late March and therefore will not be available to ship until then.
