1522 Saint Louis is proud to present

Radicalized, Small Threats, and Of Course the Sunrise

February 6th- March 20th, 2015

In the exhibition – Radicalized, Small Threats, and Of Course the Sunrise – Megan Lindeman mixes nostalgia with emotion and science in new works that deliver an abstract and potent recognition of today’s political climate. Oxytocin (a hormone involved in complicated brain activity like bonding and trusting) is mixed with gouache and painted on canvas and paper in a manner that hints at modernist roots as well as today’s transdisciplinary spirit. Titles like Hunter Green (a color from the 90’s like when I was 12 so that’d be 93′), and the Richness of Darkness, 2015 and Army Green Y’all, Laura Ashley Coveted Flower Print, It’s even Worse Then It Seems, and The Richness of Darkness, 2015 eluded to the roll that color, pattern and nostalgia play in the works. Her titles also elude to the narrative origin of the works that the artist describes as “complicatedly positive.”
