Fueled by a need to find closure in a deteriorating world, Wisconsin-born Colorado transplant Lindsey Yeager paints and illustrates connections between society and nature, between human and animal, translating and reframing human contexts into fearful, raw, and feral allegories. Lindsey received a BFA in New Studio Practice and Illustration from Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in 2021 and she went on to win two Society of Illustrators awards and participate in the 2021-22 cycle of Plum Blossom Initiative’s Bridge Work residency. Her work has been shown at Var Gallery in Milwaukee, WI, Mana Contemporary in Chicago, IL, Soft Times Gallery in San Francisco, CA, Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend, WI, and Society of Illustrators in Manhattan, NY, among others. She has taught at Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh, and Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
"I'm always excited to work on projects with really expansive, unique, and faceted subjects - from film history, to architecture, to imagery related to Milwaukee, a city I called home for six years. It was exciting to pay homage to some of the earliest films ever made in conjunction with pattern-based imagery found in our city's historic cinemas.
I also am very inspired by the wonder of watching a film for the first time that I know I'll come back to time and time again. Movie magic is definitely real and it can create incredibly surreal, not-of-this-world feelings.Filmmaking is an astounding artform and I'm really glad I had the opportunity to celebrate it!"
Lindsey is represented by Var Gallery in Milwaukee, WI and works as the Studio Coordinator of Painting, Drawing, & Printmaking at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, CO. She is currently working toward her debut solo exhibition at Var Gallery in May of 2024.
