Lindsay Splichal | Aug 31 2017
Lindsay Splichal’s new body of work, Subjective, holds a conversation that questions the materials of consensus reality and evokes further examination of truth. These pieces ask the viewer to reflect upon the notion of self. These pieces challenge our perspectives on the histories of objects and our relationships with these objects. Splichal creates abstract compositions of orderly chaos through the replicated objects encountered in the space. Their origin becomes abstracted through repetition. Their original context becomes uncertain. This work contests our beliefs about reality by transcending the very medium of the art-object.
