Indigo Mind presents an excursion with watercolor artist Lindsay Stripling as we walk from Case for Making to Ocean Beach. Together we will dip our toes in the Pacific and gather some ocean water to bring back to the table to paint, from memory, with shades of blue only, bringing in the feeling of indigo.
Lindsay Stripling is an artist based in San Francisco, she received her BFA in painting from SFAI in 2013. Lindsay is interested in fragmentation, and the moment that our experiences form themselves into lore and legend. Memories are fuzzy and intangible much like dreams, and the more specific she tries to make them the less sharp they become, slipping in and out of focus. In her recent body of work Lindsay is using the nostalgia and familiarity of landscape as a stage to create new and unfamiliar spaces that focus on a humorous and surreal postapocalyptic world where humans and nature collide and combine.
Case For Making, founded by Alexis Petty, is a storefront located in San Francisco's Outer Mission, offering creative supply basics, raw materials, and workshops, selected and designed to encourage process-focused exploration. Our practice is to recognize the presence of creative inquiry in multiple forms, and to provide space for engaging in and valuing this work.
