Lindsay Terhorst North is a mixed media painter and installation artist, who explores personal issues of identity, change, displacement and value.
She states: "I have always been drawn to trees because I identify with how they weather the elements. Their marks of life are external and visible yet equally internal and hidden. As a result, I would expose my canvasses to layers and layers of oil and ink to represent our own life experiences through time. There has always been tension between the raw and expressive mark making versus my more painstakingly applied brushstrokes. But, as I have grown and developed I have come to terms with my own experiences. As such, my new series of work reveals a gradual, transformative shift in perspective”.
