Drive-By Projects is pleased to present Pink, an exhibition of Lynne Harlow's color and sound installation Limitless and Lonesome.
During a 2002 residency in West Texas Lynne Harlow was struck by the quality of the evening sunlight, which she later recalled as a warm, rich pink. Inspired by this experience, Harlow went on to make the color and sound installation Limitless and Lonesome, currently installed in the Drive-By Projects storefront space. Years later, Harlow discovered a remarkably similar pink painted on a wall at the Gropius House in Lincoln, MA. The color, mixed by Lyonel Feininger at the request of Gropius, was intended to feel like reflected light at dusk.
Limitless and Lonesome explores the intersection of color and sound, combining the two in a spare and atmospheric installation that fills its surroundings. The joining of these inherently unrelated elements, atmospheric pink and an original soundtrack, comes to feel purposeful and inevitable. They generate a specific, previously nonexistent relationship that is ultimately synthesized by the viewer of the work. The installation is equal parts material and immaterial, making it impossible to say where the piece begins and ends.
