PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Pentimenti Gallery
presents new works by Jacob Lunderby in his solo show, Redactor. This new series finds Jacob Lunderby offering a new take on cityscape, a conflicted fascination between the ugly and the beautiful, the overlooked and the obvious.
While the production of the work includes the use of digital resources and a printer, Lunderby's objective is to have the viewer read the work in the context of painting. His use of marginal materials and sense of precarious formalism found in this meshwork of images (of windows and patterns) provides a generative model to engage layers of attention, materiality and durations of time, from the context of a restaged image to the life span of painting.
Through the process of using optical patterns in conjunction with images that gesture towards methods of concealment, containment and protection, Jacob Lunderby uses painting to activate the following ideas: to engage the potential to contain, disrupt and direct attention, and to address the image/painting object in its complex relationship to time and context.
Jacob Lunderby received his MFA from the University of Minnesota and his BFA from Minneapolis College of Art & Design. His recent exhibitions are: Gwangmoon International Art Festival, Seoul, South Korea; Emory and Henry College, Emory, VA; Regis Center for the Arts, Minneapolis, MN; Abington Art Center, Jenkintown, PA; ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) Philadelphia, PA; Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul, MN; and more.
