Lindsey Claire Newman is an artist and writer living in southwest Michigan with her family, where she primarily makes mixed media paintings exploring some of life's big questions, primarily through the lens of cosmology, biology, eastern philosophies and astrology.
Lindsey's paintings are fueled by her interest in the unknown. Her newest work, Bang, a series of Ancestral Maps, explores the deconstruction of ideas that our human minds generally accept as reality. Embedded within this inquiry are themes such as non-linear time, perceived structures of human existence, and the boundaries between the living and the dead. She works fluidly on both ends of the micro and macro axis and often allows her paintings to hold multiple perspectives at once.
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 in 2021.
