GBGLA is pleased to present The View From Home, Los Angeles native Lindsey Warren’s second solo show with the gallery. In this new series of oil paintings, Warren continues her exploration of light and color and form but with a focus on a more intimate and personal series of locations.

Our worlds grew smaller during the last two years - quite literally shrinking to little beyond our own homes.  For Warren, this brought a new focus to spaces she’d often driven passed in the years before the pandemic.  Walking the streets of her neighborhood, Warren became intimately acquainted with these views and vistas and photographed them repeatedly - studying the changing light and colors and angles. The neighborhood’s flora became recurring characters and the resulting paintings feel like portraits of friends she watched grow and change through seasons.

Her distinctive painting style is a representational depiction of places she encounters and documents.  Warren observes in person in addition to taking reference photos, later comparing the photos to her memory of the place. The resulting paintings are interpretations of these memories with details added and subtracted throughout her painting process. Foreground silhouettes are simplified and assigned colors that suit the overall palette and interrupt or frame the colorful skies beyond.  Notably, Warren takes very few liberties with the architecture as these are intended to be portraits of these places.  The resulting unique composition is of a landscape that is simultaneously stylized and real.

Lindsey Warren was born and raised in Los Angeles. She received her BFA (2004) and MFA (2008) in Painting from Boston University, and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate from Brandeis University (Waltham, MA).  Her work as been exhibited throughout the United States with recent shows in Los Angeles, New York City, and Laguna Beach. Lindsey has been a studio artist in Chashama’s Workspace Program in NYC and a participant in the Bronx Museum’s AIM program. Her public works and murals have been installed in Boston and New York City.  She lives and works in Los Angeles.
