Drawn Pink

art & illustration

Drawn Pink is a stunning forty-foot installation by Kansas City based artist Anne Lindberg, currently displayed at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha. The work is comprised of threads of Egyptian cotton held in place by staples. Over 23 miles of thread was used for the piece.

I am completely blown away by the subtle beauty of the colour balance. The object looks like a pink pencil drawing suspended in the air. People reportedly gasp upon seeing the work, which surprises me not one bit.

Check out the time lapse video of the installation. Drawn Pink is part of a group show, titled Placemakers, which will run at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts till March 31, 2012.
