An opportune time to say what you're feeling
November 14 - December 14, 2019
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Empty Gallery is pleased to present 'An opportune time to say what you're feeling', a solo exhibition of work by Chris Lindsay.
Originally from Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Christopher Lindsay has lived, worked, and studied in five different Canadian provinces; having raised two sons in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Twenty years of experience as a microbiologist helped refine Lindsay’s ability to engage and interpret visual information, grounding him in a profound appreciation for the natural systems that sustain the balance of the cosmos.
Having arrived at a commitment to focus on cultivating his personal artistic expression later in life, Lindsay completed his BFA at the University of Ottawa (2011) and an MFA at the University of Victoria (2013). This resulted in opportunities to exhibit his work in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Victoria, and Vancouver. He is currently employed as an Academic Assistant in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Victoria where he supports student development in fabrication and problem solving skills and instructs a course in sculptural methods and materials.
Lindsay champions the question over the answer, weighing its potential for meaning in relation to his own experience of living. The work in this exhibition explores the expressive possibilities of an aesthetic methodology he developed during his MFA.
‘An opportune time to say what you're feeling’ runs from November 14 to December 14, 2019. Visit the gallery during regular hours or by appointment.
