Skylark, 241 Portobello High Street
Invited artist, Lindsey Lavender, shows work exploring the rhythms of light and shade in urban environments with a fascination for the overlooked detail.
Painting predominates her practice with drawing as a fundamental, underpinning aspect. Through her current work she examines the urban environment seeking simple, overlooked observations with a fascination for the mundane.
Lindsey originally trained and practised as an architect and this background has gifted her with a passion for the built environment; the buildings and the spaces in between. She is intrigued and inspired by the alleyways, structures and derelict places which shape our towns and cities, as much as the architecture.
Her work has been described as having a sense of narrative and an atmosphere of calm which draws the viewer in. She explores the rhythm of light and shade, often on the seemingly ordinary; showing the everyday in a new light.
