A Quest for Tradition
30 x 36 cm
After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1985, Steven Lindsay embarked on a successful career in the Music industry. As a recording artist he released albums for Virgin, Warner brothers and EMI. In 2005 and 2007 his solo albums were lauded by the Sunday Times, Guardian, Telegraph and the Independent amongst others.
In 2008 he returned to Glasgow School of Art night classes to study figure drawing and began a new career as an artist. He is now a full time painter. His work sees a traditional painting style, mostly figurative given a contemporary narrative by using space and light as a backdrop to his mostly solitary figures.
Estelle Lovatt, the art critic featured on the New Radio 2 Arts Show with Claudia Winkleman described his work as
“like revisiting Vermeer in the Dutch Golden Age of painterly skill against the Colour Field of Rothko, all intertwined with an aesthetic twist of contemporary, complex-simplicity. Lindsay using his paintbrush eloquently, capturing painterly conversations between the art history giants of a bygone age and a bygone art.”
