Lindsay Dew’s artwork attempts to capture an emotional memory of a place rather than to document it. Her artwork comments on our connection to land and our relationship to our surroundings, influencing who we are. Lindsay was brought up in a variety of landscapes yet always found a way back to the landscape of her roots. Born a Canadian, yet fascinated by histories of other countries she traveled, Lindsay realized her country's young history was recorded in the landscape rather than acknowledged in architecture or monuments as European cultures. Canada's has natural monuments. These majestic mountain ranges signify longevity and permanency. In Lindsay's art process, she creates a foundation by applying multiple layers to her artworks to symbolize this history. Lindsay's work aims to evoke personal memories of connecting in nature. Continuing with this theme of memory, Lindsay's artworks are inspired by and titled after song titles which also tend to evoke memories of the listener. Music can transport one to a past event when listened to. The same can be said for memory triggers around familiar scenary.
