Artist Statement

Every artist who approaches the genre of landscape trods a well-worn path of traditional regional motifs and solutions by hundreds artists who created before her. It is a challenging path that can succeed when attempts rise above the predictable and noisy clamor of such a convention. Each of my paintings is about a journey to that goal. Creating landscapes that exist somewhere between the illustrative and the sculptural is pushing headlong into an overexposed genre in an attempt to discover something new. Inspiration comes from many regional art traditions. These works are my exploration to find what might still be new in a genre with a long tradition.

Artist Bio

Lyndie Vantine was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. She has also lived in Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD. She holds a MLA degree from Johns Hopkins University, a MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, and a BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art. She has exhibited throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, New Mexico, and Massachusetts for the past twenty-five years. She was selected to participate in the Corcoran Art Gallery's ArtSites98 biennial.

"I'm looking for that space between painting and sculpture because the work is both, and I find the tension there challenging. It's definitely a metaphor for how life is these days, but I loathe thinking of it as too autobiographical, especially in such an abstract form."
