Lindsay Watson is a contemporary artist, based in Ottawa, Ontario, who merges photographs of the small and large moments in her life with the lush expressiveness of oil paint to create artworks that range in tone and scope from humorous to quiet, tender to fairytale-esque. Watson approaches painting with the eye of a documentary photographer, exploring themes such as her recent foray into motherhood, travel, and the visual fragments of her rural past and urban present.
Particularly fascinating to this artist, is the way that photographs, (all her own, and either transferred directly onto the painting surface, or used as a visual reference), create a sense of shifting viewpoints when combined with expressive painting. Watson's painting style is an eclectic mix of abstraction and photo-realism, employing both brush and palette knife. Together, this result in a unique blend of landscape and mindscape.
Watson is a BFA graduate of the University of Ottawa who has shown in Ottawa, Kingston, and Toronto. She shares her love of art through teaching adults and children.
