Lindsey Lavender

An award winning painter, Lindsey maintains a busy schedule of exhibiting work throughout the UK and is represented in both public and private art collections. She is an elected Professional Member of both the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) and Visual Arts Scotland (VAS). Lindsey lives and works in Edinburgh and grew up in the North of England.

 

Lindsey was originally trained and practised as an architect and this background has gifted her with a passion for the built environment; the buildings and the spaces in between.

 

Lindsey is drawn to the structural elements of cities: stairways, doorways, arches, bridges; points of transition / thresholds. She is interested in the way in which light interacts with the mundane; the transformative effect of sunlight and shade on something very ordinary; essential elements upon which we tend not to focus. Colour and perspective are important features of the work but the key focus is always the light.

 

Lindsey’s work focuses the viewer’s attention on the interplay of light with the structure and often treats other elements of the composition in a more abstract way. Her work has been described as having a sense of narrative and an atmosphere of calm which draws the viewer in. She explores the rhythm of light and shade, often on the seemingly ordinary; seeing the everyday in a new light.
