Urban/Suburban features the work of two Brooklyn artists, Lindsey Senn and Dylan Williams.
Senn and Williams share the ability to transform a commonplace image or scene into one of haunting memory. Senn’s suburban streets and Williams’ water towers reflect the longing for corroboration of one’s particular place in the environment.
Lindsey Senn, “I enjoy the play between geometric and organic forms, and the kind of brush stroke each inspires. An everyday street scene is rich in this kind of visual content and allows the painter to explore various textures…I would like to elevate our experience of the commonplace through visual exploration and understanding.”
From years of painting rooftop landscapes, Dylan Williams became “aware that water tanks are like forgotten people in forgotten places and that each one is unique and duels with the boundaries and context in which it stands….As the hour, the season, and the weather all change, so too do the tanks in relation to their surroundings. Each has a distinct personality and tells a different story.”
