Lindsey Brittain Collins is a fine artist working primarily with oil, acrylic, found objects, and building materials. Drawing on her academic background in business, economics, and sociology, she examines economic and social issues, including race, religion, gender, and sexuality, through painting, assemblage, and collage. Additionally, she explores built environments and lets material inspiration find her. Though her work changes in terms of medium, format, and approach, the common thread is always the subject of economics and imposed markers of identity.
Lindsey received her B.A. in Economics and Sociology from the University of Virginia and her MBA from Columbia Business School. In 2018 she was awarded a residency at the Vermont Studio Center and was appointed by the Governor to the Art & Architectural Review Board for the state of Virginia on which she will serve until 2022. In addition, she is the recipient of the 2019 Arena Stage Emerging Leader Award. Lindsey was accepted to the Columbia University School of Arts MFA program, and this fall she will join the class of 2021. Her work has been exhibited across the United States.
