“My practice seeks to encourage optimism and joy by imbuing strength in minor characters. In my recent paintings, the characters take the form of figures or objects that occupy the periphery, are often overlooked, or are considered insignificant. I would liken it to selecting a prop or tree from the background set to be the star of the play.” — Lindsey Cuenca Walker

About the Artist

File 83512

Lindsey Cuenca Walker (b. 1988) is a Portland, Oregon based artist who paints abstracted botanical forms and narrative still lifes. Set against a deserted pastel landscape, Lindsey’s decisive use of black outlines accentuates the instability of her wavering flowers and stocky forms. Imbued with humor and idiosyncratic personality, Lindsey crafts a world dominated by nature and inanimate objects.
