Paradise (Paved Over): David Chapman Lindsay
This Texas Tech Faculty Member and Installation Artist unites figural imagery with minimalist constructions.

My work focuses on the interaction between images of the human form and the structured, three-dimensional surfaces upon which the figures are depicted. The structures in this work interact with the depictions in a way that develops metaphorical significance: metaphors of culture and environment that create and manipulate perceptions of ourselves. The status of the depiction is put into question, asking how we perceive ourselves within the context of the structure. This visual relationship speaks of the push and pull between perception and identity. Creating this type of metaphorical relationship allows me to explore ideas about how we depict and perceive ourselves within a vast, complexly structured society.
