Patrick Lundberg 6

Patrick Lundberg is a painter who creates inconspicuous installations, characterised by a quiet, handmade aesthetic. Referencing traditions of Minimalism, Colour Field, Abstraction and Formalism, Lundberg’s unassuming paintings disarm and reinvigorate it through the lens of site-specificity. Lundberg’s distinctive pieces are comprised of small-scale elements – metal pins and rods, shoelaces, spheres of resin, wood and metal – arranged in sequence according to a set of spatial constraints designed to honour and enhance the work’s architectural context. Embedded into the walls or scattered on the floor, his interventions draw the viewer into engaging with the politics of perception and awareness.

Patrick Lundberg completed his BFA from the Elam School of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland, NZ. Lundberg has exhibited internationally, including at Dunedin Public Art Gallery, Dunedin; The Dowse Art Museum, Wellington; Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, Auckland; Goya Curtain, Tokyo; and FOLD, London. In 2008, Lundberg was the winner of the Trust Waikato National Contemporary Art Award.
