Artist Anne Lindberg creates abstract drawings and installations made from graphite and colored thread that are both rhythmic and mesmerizing.
Her graphite drawings are made up of parallel lines of graphite and often involving colored pencil as well. They are intense and full of energy and almost remind me of heartbeats or sound waves on paper.
Lindberg’s thread drawings (below) are made by using strings of colorful rayon thread that are vertically strung creating beautiful linear works that are studies in color and also show her unbelievable patience that it took to do each one.

Speaking of patience, her room-sized installations feature thousands of thread strands that are thoughtfully attached to the walls, creating a mind-blowing optical feast for your eyes.
