"Traversing representation and abstraction, Lindsay McCulloch’s paintings express the disorienting nature of personal and technological change, in which the familiar quickly becomes strange..." - Linda Matney Gallery, Williamsburg VA

My recent shaped paintings use gesture, shape, color and often humor to explore time, memory and my all-consuming need to paint. I compose my pieces with a nod to art history by referencing ubiquitous tropes of abstraction such as the splatter, paint smear and grid. I fastidiously render every detail of these tropes, bringing the painting full circle to an act of meticulous observational painting.
