Rotating Art Show
December 1 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
The 0001: A Collection of Paintings by Tiffany Lindsey exhibit will be on display in the first floor conference room of the Town hall (1200 Duck Rd) from Friday, December 1, 2023 to Friday, January 25, 2024 (excluding holidays).
This exhibition surveys Tiffany’s ongoing investigations into intuitive processes in painting. Within these works, she uses fast-paced painting techniques to capture the elusive constituents of her everyday inner world: scattered thoughts, incompletion, impulses, flashes of emotion. Although her works are non-representational, she believes they are her reflection in a mirror, capturing a visceral reality that can only be apprehended indirectly. The paintings are the record of her intuitive and self-generated process that she claims “is where art lives.”
A free opening reception for this exhibit will take place on Saturday, December 9 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room of the Town hall. Come visit with the artist and view the exhibit.
Tiffany Lindsey is an interdisciplinary artist living and working on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Her primary art form is abstract painting, although she also plays with photography and sculpture. Her professional career as Art Gallery Manager at Dare Arts in Manteo, NC, and as a freelance art consultant and advisor helps educate her eye and expand her aesthetic judgments.
Growing up, Lindsey immersed herself in the arts. In school she experimented with multiple mediums, from clay, found objects, and a variety of two-dimensional techniques. “I had always known I was a visual artist, but for a long time I didn’t consider myself particularly good at it,” she said. “It’s frustrating not to be good at something you love, so I lived with a lot of discontent and aggravation. It wasn’t until I discovered abstraction that I understood my identity. Since then, I haven’t looked back.”
