Roger Billcliffe Gallery in Glasgow is showing the first exhibition in Glasgow of work by Lindsey Lavender. Formerly an architect, Lindsey subsequently studied at art school and her paintings betray an interest – even excitement – in our everyday environment.
She has said, ‘I am drawn to the infrastructural elements of cities: stairways, doorways, arches, bridges; the points of transition and thresholds. I am interested in the way in which light interacts with the mundane; the transformative effect of sunlight and shade on something very ordinary; essential elements upon which we tend not to focus. Colour and perspective are important features of the work but the key focus is always the light.’
