Join artist Lindsay Kirker for an Artist Talk on April 3rd.
All Visiting Artist series talks are free and open to all. This series is presented in partnership with the UBC Okanagan Gallery.

Lindsay Kirker’s paintings take their cue from the rapid expansion of the urban landscape; surveying a curiosity and fascination with the built environment and a concern for the nature that surrounds us. By utilizing the tools of perspective Kirker reflects on our relationship with Nature. Drawing on reoccurring themes of love, loss, demolition and rebuilding, the construction in her paintings stand as a metaphor to explore the spectrum of human experience, confronting the ideas and structures we put in place in order to protect ourselves from uncertainty. The paintings themselves are a search for stability. As an emerging artist, solo exhibitions include – This is a Love Story in 2021 at The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art and in 2022, This is Water at The Vernon Public Art Gallery. In 2022, she participated in the La Napoule Canadian Artist Residency in La Napoule, France, and in 2023 will be an artist in residence at The Boathouse outside of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. A graduate of The University of British Columbia Okanagan and recipient of the 2019 Audain Foundation Travel Award and Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Master’s Award, she is presently settled on the traditional territory of the Syilx/Okanagan Peoples in British Columbia, Canada.
