Lindsy Davis is an American artist known for her gesture and negative space work that push and pull the eyes’ perception of space and depth. Lindsy works prolifically in series, her concepts question ideas of perceived consciousness, theories in psychology (Gestaltism), and physically binds conceptual metaphor by using resources in the process that solidify her concept. She has spent her career making her process as sustainable as possible by making her own paper, building and burning her tools, deriving her own pigments/ stains and building her frames. Lindsy has shown internationally, was a National Parks Artist in Residence during their centennial year (2016), she is featured in collections throughout the nation and in South Africa. Lindsy received her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/ Tufts University in Boston Massachusetts. She was born in Mahwah, New Jersey in 1990, and currently lives and works in Nashville TN.
Lindsy works with negative space and the eye’s perception of depth. Using line, gesture, minimalism, and varying tonal shifts and finishes, she pushes the psychological theory of Gestaltism through spacial compositions that challenge what is or is not there and what the eye perceives is there.
