Abstraction derived from nature

Gillian Lindsay

In 1997 I made the transition from executive producer in film to fine art photographer. Since then, I have been exploring abstraction, producing work that is more about texture, colour and composition and less about representational subject matter. In my LIGHT IMITATING ART series, I explore altered light sources and double exposure, creating images that appear more like charcoal sketches than photographs. I am drawn to surrealism, images borne out of dreams and the creative subconscious. In this exciting experimentation with light, a figure or reference to a slightly definable object may emerge. I am often asked: what am I looking at? The answer is simply, light.My series of SURFACES has emerged through discovery of art in found objects. Splashes of paint, graffiti or poster remnants, which exist for only a brief moment in time before being painted over or scraped away, create opportunities for montage and compositions. I have explored ancient walls in Europe and local industrial sites in search of weathered stone or wood, rusted metal and distressed paint, while finding a fascination in documenting man-made materials’ never-ending attempt to return to nature. I employ closely cropped images to remove any contextual reference, with the objective of creating a painterly, abstract image. Gillian Lindsay
