Exhibit: David Chapman Lindsay

December 11, 2015 - January 24, 2016

FREE

The focus of the exhibit will be above eye level.  David Chapman Lindsay perceives his work as illustrating individual potential and the beauty of individual tragedy as defined through literal and metaphysical systems.  His work comes from the traditions of figurative painting, minimalist forms, church spaces, and strong interest in how space can be used as a metaphor for broad community and individual psychology.

 

David Chapman Lindsay’s paintings expand beyond the confines of the traditional canvas, into our space, and beyond. They are both a recognition of the limitations of his own painting and a refusal to let those control the work. His work is both thoughtful and quietly irreverent, as he paints beautiful spaces and then takes them apart or stretches them out like putty.

For the Above Our Heads exhibit, much of the artwork hangs above the viewer, challenging how the viewer interacts with the works and the space. The pieces are inspired by architectural structures, starting with the 4 paintings (6’ w x 4’ h x 3’ d) whose shapes are inspired by the capitals found on the top of columns in churches. The paintings are on sculpted canvases, created by the artist as a metaphor for psychological space.

Above Our Heads is not only the title of the exhibit, but the title of the centerpiece of the show. It references the motifs of classical architecture, like a web or net, falling down on us or floating just over our heads. The work depicts a number of figures, angels sculpted in stone, which are found at the intersections of the structure. These figures suggest a compression of the space, or explosion of it, from the heads of the mute statuary.
