About Cherith Lundin
Cherith Lundin was born in Minneapolis, grew up in Germany, and spent her 20s and 30s roaming the United States. She has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions across the country as well as in Europe, including at the Chicago Artists Coalition, Minnesota Museum of American Art, Redux Contemporary Art Center, SC, Midwest Center for Photography, KS, South Bend Museum of Art, IN, and Galeriehaus Nord, Germany.
In her work, Cherith takes note of ordinary and often overlooked spaces as a way of examining the tensions between here and elsewhere, between the known and the imagined, between presence and absence. This engagement with everyday moments results in large-scale drawing installations, paintings that frame the complex psychological and visceral effects of light and color, folding sculptures, and mixed-media ‘maps’ that register the passage of time or movement through space. Implicit throughout is the assumption that attention to nuance and particularity will be rewarded by discovery.
Cherith is the recipient of numerous prestigious grants, including from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Foundation for Contemporary Art New York, the Jerome Foundation, and the Indiana Arts Commission. Alongside of teaching, Cherith has pursued an active curatorial practice, focusing on bringing artists and communities into vital conversation.
