Lindsey Claire Newman is an artist and writer living in southwest Michigan with her husband and son, where she primarily makes mixed media paintings exploring potential realities on a universal scale.
Lindsey's paintings are fueled by her interest in the unknown. Her newest work, Bang, a series of Ancestral Maps, is a visual interpretation of lifetimes, layered over one another, exploring concepts such as non-linear time, perceived structures of human existence, and the boundaries between the living and the dead. More on the Bang series here.
Lindsey is also the creator of a zine called Connect. This publication is a vehicle for her writing and poems, and also provides insight into her creative process and practice. A published poet, once nomadic, now a city dweller immersed in motherhood, Lindsey writes from the heart. Her writing describes her world through the lens of what she calls 'storybook reality', which assumes nothing as fact, prefers hypercolor and symbolism, and leans heavily into dreamtime and the subconsious. She is currently working on two more zines, due for publication mid-2020.
