Lindsey Carr is an artist living and working on the coastline in the South-West of Scotland. Many of her subjects however, tend to be from more exotic locations and her wanderlust is expressed in paint rather than travel. Her work is strongly influenced by European and Chinese natural history paintings and their subjects. She sometimes uses these to examine the problems of “nature vs nurture”. Her paintings are created to resemble antique decorative artifacts. Almost all of the frames are antiques and the paper is treated to give the impression of age. Sometimes Carr embellishes her paintings with gold leaf, embroidered glass beads and pearls.
Carr’s current exhibition, “The Augmented Animal” is on now at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington and runs through May 5, 2012. To see more; visit LindseyCarr.co.uk.
