Lindsay Dew is a Canadian painter who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University, majoring in Fine Arts. Lindsay also attended École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France. Lindsay’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
Lindsay Dew’s upbringing in ever changing landscapes has influenced her as a painter. With each body of work she would subconsciously revert back to painting landscapes, specifically mountainous ones. She later realized she was painting the landscape of her birth country. Lindsay felt these landscapes grounded her and therefore felt authentic in her artwork. Her landscape paintings attempt to capture the emotional memory of a place rather than documenting it. Lindsay’s work comments on our connection to land and our personal relationship to our surroundings.
Lindsay has long been fascinated by the history of countries she visited. Born in Canada, a relatively young country, Lindsay came to the realization that our deep rooted Canadian history is recorded and celebrated in our natural environment. Lindsay views mountain ranges as holding and recording history of the land.
