I MAKE THINGS
My proclivity towards visual art and my desire to create takes on many different faces. I am a long term painter, dabbling in animation, screen printing, and puppetry. I am a musician, and herbal enthusiast, with a passion for kitchen witchery.
Artist, lyricist, poet, musician, animator, designer, small scale screen printer, kitchen witch, and herbal enthusiast; Lindsey Elcessor channels a fierce spark of renaissance through a creative and prolific repertoire. The subject matter of her personal work is often esoteric and symbolic, reflecting a universal, but also very personal search for spiritual acceptance, meaning, and volition. Her paintings reflect a world view which could be loosely categorized as magical realism, where the supernatural, subconscious, imaginative, and magical aspects of reality are matter-of-fact, neither repressed or glorified by the logical constructs of society. This is visible not only in her subject matter, but in her style of painting itself. Where translucent washes of watercolor flank ribbons and patterns of richly colored gouache to provoke a palette of synesthesia reminiscent of artists such as Gauguin and Klimt. Lindsey's work creates a space for introspection, a vignette of the subconscious, where the world is still pliable in the waking of a dream, and death stands over our shoulder to remind us of the everblooming spark of consciousness embodied by a material veil, subject to the eventuality of decay and transmutation.
