Lindsay Dew’s artwork aims to capture the emotional memory of a place rather than simply document it. Her artwork comments on our connection to land and our personal relationship to our surroundings. Lindsay grew up in a variety of landscapes yet was always drawn to the landscape of her roots, mountains. She was fascinated by the long 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. Seasonal transitions reflect environmental climate changes which can also be witnessed in these mountain ranges.
In viewing these painted landscapes, the observer may recount personal memories and past experiences. The observer may feel drawn to a specific painting because it evokes a feeling which reminds them of a landscape they have experienced.
