MINUS SPACE is thrilled to present the exhibition Lynne Harlow: Ask the Sky, Baker Bridge Road. This is the Providence, Rhode Island-based artist’s third solo exhibition at the gallery and it will feature a site-sensitive installation investigating a single color as it relates to space, material, and sensation.

Lynne Harlow’s Baker Bridge Road series consists of ten new works that respond to a specific pale pink color used by Bauhaus architect Walter Gropius (1883-1969) on an exterior wall of the house he designed and built for his family at 68 Baker Bridge Road in Lincoln, Massachusetts in 1938. Wishing to reduce the glare from the sun on the second floor deck of the house, Gropius recruited his friend and colleague, artist Lyonel Feininger to create a color that Gropius characterized as reflected light at dusk. Although only slightly discernable from the rest of the house’s primarily all-white exterior, the wall was painted Feininger’s delicate pink color in 1949. This singular color, as well as its complex relationship with its surrounds, is the point of departure for Harlow’s Baker Bridge Road installation.

Arranged according to a precise visual and material progression, the exhibition will present works that evolve from compact and dense in nature to light and ethereal in appearance. For these works, Harlow employs a broad array of divergent materials, including Plexiglas, LED-lit acrylic, paper, fabric, paint, and projected light. The largest work included in the exhibition, which consists simply of pink light projected on a white wall, most closely approaches Gropius’ original color association: reflected light at dusk.

About her body of work, Harlow questions, “How little is enough? How much can be taken away before a piece crumbles?” She continues, “I arrive at my pieces by reducing physical and visual information. This process of reduction, a steady taking away, is ultimately intended to be an act of generosity. In each piece I’m looking for the point at which these reductions allow me to give the most. It’s an appealing contradiction because it prompts one to reconsider the concept of abundance and the nature of giving.”

Exhibition runs from February 27 to April 9, 2016.
