Exhibition at Heskin Contemporary presents 25 acrylic paintings on panel by Nikki Lindt
‘Nikki Lindt: dis place’ is on view at Heskin Contemporary from May 22nd through June 28, 2014.
NEW YORK, NY.- Heskin Contemporary is presenting Nikki Lindt’s second solo exhibition ‘Nikki Lindt: dis place’ featuring 25 acrylic paintings on panel.

‘Nikki Lindt: dis place’ continues the artists’ investigation of the natural world. Using a poetic sensibility and at times humor, Nikki explores the changes that have occurred to the familiar natural places of her past and the feelings of loss connected to this. Nikki has been working with the idea of nature and human impact since the 90s and more recently has been researching the psychological aspect of this change, *Solastalgia, in her current body of work. Each painting portrays a fleeting, actively deconstructing moment within the natural world as portrayed in disintegrating parts, flowing or dissolving. The figures are solid and seemingly permanent; persistent strangers in nature. They don't seem to belong there or perhaps even know how they got there.

“My studio practice tracks my sense of loss of natural places as memories shift and at times are ripped away by development, pollution, climate change and political actions that I have no control over. Never has the genre of figure and landscape been so critical and so urgent to my practice.”
~Nikki Lindt

‘Nikki Lindt: dis place’ is on view at Heskin Contemporary from May 22nd through June 28, 2014.

*As opposed to nostalgia--the melancholia or homesickness experienced by individuals when separated from a loved home--Solastalgia is the distress that is produced by environmental change impacting people while they are directly connected to their home environment, in effect their home leaves them.
