Linda King Ferguson: The Waiting Room
Channel to Channel Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibit featuring the work of Linda King Ferguson: “The Waiting Room.”
King Ferguson has been working on her ongoing project called The Equivalence Series for nearly six years. The work is sourced from the abstracted feminine body. To Linda, there are a myriad of connections between the human body and empirical geometry. The dynamism of forms, the curved edges of a perfect circle. Form generates from nature’s geometric principles, and felt gestures become the curl and curve of opened flapped forms. Lines as edges traverse smooth surfaces, defining protective outside layers and exposing interior vulnerable absences. These careful and stilled material glimpses signify a reflexive meaning.Through a feminist lens, the Equivalence Series sources hues from lipstick and nail polish sample charts. Linen, both raw and painted, is like the haptic texture of skin.
Almost all of the works in this exhibition were made during the pandemic and over this past year with the tensions of isolation that hampers and strains our social relationships. These conditions give a very specific context to art making.
We are required to shelter in place, making our homes perpetual waiting rooms as we rely on the intimate distance of our devices to communicate and connect. In isolation, it’s these threads of connection that assure us of our humanity while we practice the acts of being and making through emotive gestures. We must plan and work, and heal and hope through a shared empathy while change is being made. Linda argues that an artist’s studio is not unlike a Waiting Room; A place between of careful measures, uncertainties and anticipation.
The show will be on view at Channel to Channel from March 4th to March 31st. The gallery is open Wednesday-Saturday from 10am-6pm.
