Using varied processes; layers of pours, drips, glazes, and brushstrokes large and small, the animated marks suggest life-forms, unknown but familiar. For more than 30 years, Lundsager’s abstract work has been engaging both the state of the environment and the possibilities of painting.

Lundsager is a Guggenheim Fellow, and has work in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Saint Louis Museum of Art, and the Whanki Foundation in Seoul.
