Lindsay Parker

Artist's Statement


I am a self-taught painter and I have been fine-tuning my artistic abilities for the past 25 years.


 In my work, I strive toward preserving the objective details of a place and time as they exist in my memory; abstracted, distorted and exaggerated to convey the intensity of the moment as it was experienced.

 

When painting, I often focus more on spatial tension and the saturation/contrast of colors, rather than on the specific traits of identifiable forms and locations.  I’m most inspired by scenes and subjects that are in a general state of flux or transition; dawn, dusk, passing storms, or people waiting for something to happen.
