This event has ended.

Lundsager’s paintings embark on phantasmagoric journeys situated somewhere between a cerebral natural world and a depicted mind’s eye. Cosmic swathes of color and densely textured and varied abstracted imagery prove reminiscent of gaseous atmospheres and craggy, vaguely terrestrial, planetary-esque surfaces. Lundsager’s large-scale painting Glimmer presents a tight, lush plane of richly interwoven painterly flourishes concentrated at the top of the canvas that gently unwind, both in color and form, towards to bottom of the picture plane. Highlighting expressive and gestural brushwork that reverberates beyond the surface, Lundsager’s paintings explore a painterly otherworld. Explosive forms erupt amongst bold curvilinear lines while nimbus clouds of color hover above abstracted horizons. Capturing kinetic snapshots of larger reaches of controlled chaos, Lundsager’s deep hues, diverse and intricate concentrations of color and rotating compositional plane demonstrate a form of cosmic consciousness, bringing attention to the area between landscape and abstraction.

For her works on paper she dynamically layers opaque and translucent watercolor and sumi ink creating compact atmospheres filled with bursts of color, often speckled with beads of pigment. Lundsager culled the exhibition’s title from Atlantis, a poem by Jessica Baran, describing the island ultimately fated as a lost city submerged beneath the sea. The fictitious aquatic kingdom shares the same heightened mysticism as her fantastic terrains.
