Ruin and Rosa Parks by Lindsay Star Morgan
Lindsay Star Morgan Artist Bio
“Use a picture. It’s worth a thousand words.” is a quote by Arthur Brisbane and is the motto behind Lindsay Star Morgan’s Art. The focus relies on stimulating and provoking the mind of the viewer, through aesthetics and conceptual elements.
Her work is inspired by real people and literature, and is presented through representational painting executed via oil, acrylic and mixed media with an approach to different painting styles, combining pop-art, surrealism, and Dada.
Lindsay’s biggest influence has been the diverse cultural background she has been exposed to throughout her life. She was born in Arizona, raised in Chile, South America, later on moved back to the States where she graduated from Oregon State University as Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s in Fine Art in Visual Arts; today, she lives with her family in Bend, Oregon. This exposure to cultural diversities gave the artist a feeling of being a “sponge” when it comes to all the information perceived and experienced through different cultures, systems, people, and places. This trend of thought and life has had a tremendous impact in her work and has become a tool in her philosophy and expression of art.
All these influences have constructed the development of her own style, as well as the processes of thinking in which portrays other people’s stories, experiences, and struggles, through visual aesthetics and provoking concept. All pieces are carefully constructed, created, and all contain different techniques, a diverse range of mediums, mixed style, concepts, and different paths of learning.
