Lindsay Chambers is a Canadian Artist currently practicing in Toronto, Ontario. Her paintings explore the human condition and our relationship with paper. At times these paintings are representational while at other times aim to find a space between realism and abstraction.
Chambers has an Honours BA from the University of Waterloo in Fine Arts and Psychology, a certificate in 3D for Broadcast Animation and Design from Humber College and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Windsor. Her work belongs to collections across Canada, as well as in the United States, UK, Dubai, New Zealand, Australia and Japan.
Paper, by virtue of its intended function, has a relationship with the human need to communicate with others, to direct emotion, thoughts, values and knowledge. With or without obvious markings upon its surface, crumpled and discarded or particularly arranged, there is an understanding that a piece of paper has been created and influenced in content, form and gesture by its previous handler. Paper is made for our manipulation, and my work explores this relationship.
This series emerged during the physical act of creation. The ambiguity of illegible text, drawings and gestures of paper spoke to me in the sense that they all represented parts of myself, like little mental building blocks. Ever in constant evolution, this series explores pattern, image and form. It is the abstracted study of the human state of mind represented through paper.
