Lynne Harlow’s work crosses boundaries between printmaking, painting, installation and sculpture.

Cade Tompkins Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work created by Lynne Harlow. The exhibit introduces work that bridges the gap between printmaking, painting, installation and sculpture at Cade Tompkins Projects, April 13 – May 31, 2012.

The new body of work debuting in rhythm..distance incorporates an experimentation with the visual interpretations of sound and rhythm. Rhythm exists not only in music, but in everyday sounds such as heartbeats, footsteps or rain. Harlow’s new work leads the viewer through her interest in distance and interval and the ideas which create movement and space. “Music is the ultimate abstraction and rhythm is the foundation for music.” Throughout her investigation of materials and mediums, the work remains intuitive and meditative.

Featured in the show are groups of anodized aluminum and printed aluminum, a large sculptural installation consisting of fabric and sound, as well as a one-time musical performance incorporating light. In addition to the exhibition at Cade Tompkins Projects, Lynne Harlow will hold a one-day, site-specific installation and sound performance entitled “Tangerine” on Saturday, April 28th at 7pm at the Old Stone Bank in Providence, Rhode Island.

Lynne Harlow has sited her works in temporary site-specific exhibitions, most recently, at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Oaxaca, Mexico; Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Providence; and The Chapin School, New York. In 2012 her work was exhibited at Hunter College, New York in a tribute exhibition reflecting the work of John Cage. Lynne Harlow has shown with Minus Space at PS1 Museum of Modern Art, Long Island City, New York; Galerie Oqbo, Berlin and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. Harlow was a past recipient of an artist residency at the Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas. In 2011, Lynne Harlow received a residency fellowship at the BAU Institute, Otranto, Italy and was awarded The Robert and Margaret MacColl Johnson Fellowship from the Rhode Island Foundation.
