Lindsay Burke

Lindsay Burke’s work explores the female body in action, grappling to express itself and assert its autonomy. With a quirky sense of surrealism, she interchanges household objects and body parts, evoking a confused state of mental, physical and sexual tension. Pouring, spraying, scraping, sanding away and then starting the process over again, she simulates the unwieldiness of a body fighting for control. Emotion, creation, destruction, violence, pain and desire intermingle to diagram the material world of feminine embodiment.
