Lindsay Neil is an artist from Cumbernauld who is now based in Glasgow. She studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee where she gained a BA Hons in Fine Art and went on to complete a Masters in Fine Art.
Her practise includes painting, drawing and new media technology.
Lindsay's primary area of interest is "Modernist Architecture" and the so called 'New Town'. This is still an area of controversy amongst some architects, town planners and the general public, even today. Working from photographs and sketches Lindsay's paintings become almost a window with a macro view of the building opposite. In a sense, this close-up view abstracts the pictorial scene, inviting the viewer to respond differently to the surrounding townscape. As a result the viewers relationship to the painting may become a more physical experience. see gallery
During her career since graduating Lindsay has exhibited her work internationally and has worked with community groups and school children in such diverse areas as film, animation, murals, and community projects. She also serves as Secretary for the Paisley Art Institute. Workshop experience varies from early years to older adults and those with supported needs.
