Lindsay Terhorst North 

Lindsay’s work exposes her determination to come to terms with herself. She uses a raw application of mixed media combined with narratives to explore the tension between conformity and rebellion. As a child of apartheid South Africa, Lindsay struggled to resolve issues of external and internal identity and guilt. 


Her process is a dynamic negotiation where raw, energised working and reworking of the canvas contrasts with careful, calculated mark-making. Through her work Lindsay explores the themes of identity and change, loss and suffering, seeking to resolve the balance between holding back and letting go, restraint and recklessness. Her abstract figurative work is focused on the power of trees, their  materiality, their symbolism and their constant presence in a changing world.
