Mikelle Lindsey
Vulnerable moments contain uncertainty and risk. My work speaks to this uncertainty. I am specifically immersed in capturing the uncomfortable feelings that expose risk while proposing humor, and at times, relief.

I am drawn in to the emotions we cannot escape – feelings we cannot hide from – cannot control and our attempt to control them. I have always been fond of everyday materials, their accessibility, familiar unexciting ordinary qualities, and the abundant memories they innocently carry. I am in love with the materials unpretentiousness, lack of glamor and humble traits.

My process is direct, engaged, spontaneous and physical. I set up boundaries, rules and find strength in those limitations; I strive to offer honesty, humor and evoke empathy though my work.
