ABOUT THE ARTIST
“Through installation, sculpture, and drawing, my work embodies notions of order and disorder with man-made construction materials that challenge their conventional context, setting, and utility. My manipulations and processes highlight formal qualities in the materials and create dramatic physical shifts to imply they could never revert to the original manufactured state, but simply continue to change. By exhibiting these materials outside of their traditional context, I encourage viewers to look at these everyday objects in new and unexpected ways and consider the definitions of useful, useless, ordered, and disordered as elusive and subject to change through perception and comparison. These terms may never be entirely true nor entirely false; they exist somewhere between.”
Shannon Rae Lindsey received a MFA in Studio Art from the University of South Carolina and a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of South Florida. She has participated in multiple solo and group exhibitions as an interdisciplinary artist who explores drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation with unconventional art materials and processes. Her work embodies order and disorder to manifest her understanding of entropy. She was the winner of the 2014 South Carolina 701 CCA Prize and her upcoming solo exhibition Displaced Processes will be showcased at the University Place Gallery at Francis Marion University in Florence, SC. Lindsey resides in Orlando, Florida and is a faculty member teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and the UCF Art Gallery Director at the University of Central Florida.
