I'm an interdisciplinary artist in Winnipeg. My work is pretty much always about feelings.
Interested in quiet, soft (both literally and not) forms of feminist practice, unicorns, and TMI.

bio

Lindsay Joy is an interdisciplinary artist and feelings-haver. She received her BFA in Fibre from Alberta College of Art + Design in 2011, and completed her Master of Fine Art degree at the University of Manitoba in 2014.

She currently feels at a loss for bio content after googling her own name. This was a mistake.

She has exhibited at Untitled Art Society, The Works Art and Design Festival, Phantom Wing: A Pre-Demolition Project at King Edward School, among others. Her thesis exhibition, I’ll Cry If I Want To, took place at University of Manitoba’s School of Art Gallery in 2014. She lives in Winnipeg where she currently serves on the board of Mentioring Artists For Women’s Art.

artist statement

I’m an interdisciplinary artist making work about feelings. I use a variety of media including found objects, handmade embroidery and other textiles, zines, and video. These are heavily based on my personal experiences as a woman with anxiety, but are intended to connect to a viewer in a more expansive way. I often employ exceedingly saccharine “girly” aesthetics and narratives and reclaim maligned forms, such as the selfie. I often play with ambivalent nostalgia through objects, aesthetics and found materials. I love to connect with people through shared experiences and vulnerability. I’m interested in quiet, soft (both literally and not) forms of feminist practice, unicorns, and TMI. While I employ various media, my training is primarily in fibre. I consider craft and domesticity grounding concepts in the work.
