IOTA Art Exhibit featuring Los Angeles artist Linnea Spransy is currently on display in the Metcalf Gallery. We invite you to attend Linnea’s Artist Talk Thursday, September 8, at 6 pm, in the Metcalf Gallery. Reception to follow. Spransy’s work will be on display through September 30.
Spransy’s paintings, drawings and installations are generated using systems and rules which are distillations of her interest in emergent theory, quantum mechanics, theology and chaos theory. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally at numerous academic institutions including Princeton University, both commercial and non-profit galleries such as White Flag in St. Louis and Rhona Hoffman Gallery and is featured in numerous corporate collections. Her collaborative work and performances have taken place in NYC, London and in Dundee, Scotland. She is currently living and working in LA and has begun the process of forming an arts organization there, which will entail international artist residencies, a studio program and exhibition space.
Spransy was born in 1976 in Oconomowoc, Wisc. Her formative years were spent in a 75 member community in Oregon with a one room school house and a ‘common-purse’ economic structure. Her father was the synth player in one of the first Christian glam bands to ever tour. In 1999 she moved to New Haven, CT to attend Yale University and earn her MFA, which she received in 2001. At this juncture, her latent interest in science, philosophy and quantum physics came to the fore, which led her life and work in new directions.
Gallery Hours: Monday–Friday, 8 am–5 pm
