VISA 215-002, Introduction to Painting


Lindsay Kirker is an artist whose primary practice is painting. By utilizing the tools of perspective and the visual language of the built environment, Kirker reflects on our relationship with nature. Drawing on reoccurring themes of love, loss, demolition and rebuilding. The construction in Kirker’s large-scale landscapes stands as a metaphor to explore the spectrum of human experience, confronting the ideas and structures we put in place in order to protect ourselves from uncertainty. As an emerging artist, Kirker has exhibited throughout British Columbia and Alberta. In 2021, her solo exhibition This is a Love Story lead to a studio residency with The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art in Kelowna, British Columbia. In Spring 2022, while showing with Diane Feught at The Lake Country Art Gallery, she participated in the La Napoule Canadian Artist Residency in La Napoule, France and in Fall 2022 Kirker exhibited This is Water, a solo exhibition at The Vernon Public Art Gallery. A graduate of The University of British Columbia Okanagan and recipient of the 2019 Audain Foundation Travel Award and Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Master’s Award, she is presently settled on the traditional territory of the Syilx/Okanagan Peoples in British Columbia, Canada.
