For A Grand Fabrication, Lindsay Kennedy explores the formation and revision of memories over time. Choosing evocative props from her mind’s tableaux, Kennedy’s inexact replications question the subjective recollection of personal histories. Whether directly appropriating a remembered item or reversing mimicry through destruction and recreation, Kennedy acknowledges her nostalgic tendencies in tangible pieces that visually belie such hazy origins. The end result is a body of work that could either accurately depict the things being remembered or represent an entirely new work of romantic fiction.
Lindsay Kennedy was born in Bozeman, Montana and has lived in Oregon since she can remember. She received her BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2009. Her work was recently shown at New American Art Union as part of the one night group show InterSection: the lines that brought us here and at PNCA for the 2010 exhibition Perspectives on Non-Objective, Abstract, Experimental Painting. While Kennedy focuses on painting, her work represents a hybridization of multiple mediums and multiple meanings.
