LINDSEY JEAN MCLEAN
24th May - 14th June 2022
3 Works for 3 Weeks Series
Liminal Gallery is delighted to present ‘Pining’ an online solo exhibition by Lindsey Jean McLean. Miniature women dance across their own canvases, their naked bodies exploring the lush surroundings promoting sensuality and the experience of touch. They dominate the space with a wilderness curiosity, sharing with us their delight as their bodies meld into the landscape around them; entwined in the pines, wading through a stream, surfacing between rocks.
These works carve out a new direction for McLean, who is currently undergoing an artist residency in Norway. Inspired by the incredible greenery which surrounds her, she has combined the beauty of these landscapes with her interest in reveal vs concealment. The figures ooze femininity whilst questioning the trope of the historical patriarchal gaze of Mother Nature figures.
‘Pining’ is the final exhibition from the series entitled 3 Works For 3 Weeks, an innovative take on the traditional solo exhibition promoting slow looking and true engagement with the artist, the artworks and the concepts behind them. Each exhibition in the series features 3 artworks alongside text and detail images to give an intimate insight. The exhibitions run for just 3 weeks and all invited artists are either national or international, but are currently working within the UK and Republic of Ireland, to show the breadth and diversity of art available across the countries.
Each Tuesday at 10am throughout the duration of the exhibition, Liminal Gallery will release a new artwork accompanied by text and detail images onto the dedicated Viewing Room found on www.liminal-gallery.com.
