Mick Lindberg’s second solo exhibition with David Simon Contemporary has been nearly twelve months in the making. Over this period, the world has seen an extraordinary time, which has prompted the artist to explore the many ways in which we seek HOPE: ‘Some ask guidance through animal spirits; some seek healing through prayers and religious charm’, Lindberg muses, ‘others connect to the Zodiac night sky, or look for answers in the mysteries of the Tarot cards. In the stitches of my images, I hope that the layers within each piece, that other-worldly essence, will reach the imagination that each viewer possesses.”

 

The unique work by this Swedish-born artist depicts narratives in an almost painterly manner, making use of pattern and texture from her archive of vintage and antique fabrics. At the same time, the quality of stitching and intricate layering of materials makes each piece an exquisitely finished accomplishment. The faces that appear in Lindberg’s compositions are engaging and this is an exhibition that will not fail to arouse an emotional response.
