Lyndsay McKay uses her background as a former nurse to explore art, transforming materials “into a gestalt of viscerality, evocative of anatomical activity, pathogenic invasion and cellularity,” she writes on her website.
A 2020 graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design, the Victoria-based visual artist created a series called Biomorphic Landscapes that became a hot topic during the pandemic.
Until Sept. 22, some of her pieces can be seen in the Michael Wright Art Gallery in Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square (beside city hall) as part of a show with Jen Candela titled Support Structures.
The exhibit speaks “to the constantly evolving dependencies that exist between objects, bodies and environments,” city staff state.
Starting Saturday (July 17), the Michael Wright and Outlet galleries at Leigh Square are open to the public on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.
Residents don’t have to book an appointment; however, COVID protocols are required.
