Claude van Lingen has been exploring the concept 1000 Years From Now since 1978. This concept has been explored using dates, lists of names, figurative and non-figurative painting combined with TV sets and slivers of mirror that record and reflect the passing of time, well into the future.
The paintings, drawings, and mixed media constructions consider not only the linear concepts of space and time, but the layering of the physical, conscious, and subconscious experiences we might have as individuals or as a global collective. In other words, these works encapsulate the events, emotions, and conditions that link the past, the ever changing present, and the unknown/anticipated future into an inextricable whole.
