Installation view, Lavender Pit Innerscape, 2012

11.26.12 Featured Artist: Greg Lindquist

My work examines the fictive distinctions of nature and culture through painting and installation. Some of my paintings depict enigmatic objects in the landscape, while others compose the landscape through framing that recalls digital technologies that mediate how we experience the world. In the end, my painting is site-specific and can only be truly viewed in the context and the real space in which it is displayed.
