As an American artist living in Paris, I am a cultural hybrid straddling two vastly different civilizations, remaining somewhat alien in both. Observing my reality from this bifocal vantage point has informed my art and provided me with an exceptionally fertile breeding ground for new material.
Both absurdly humorous and subtly disturbing, the sculptures of Lindsey De Ovies of anthropomorphic raw chickens, nail-studded birthday cakes and oversized pharmaceuticals delicately displayed on cake trays represent the artist’s turmoil with regard to various human matters and relationships.
The bronze sculptures by Lindsey De Ovies question all things conventional: commitment, responsibility, social integration, stereotype, and identity. The art of Lindsey De Ovies is inspired by all the stages of maturing (birth, youth, marriage, family, mid-life, the randomness of death & beyond). In an effort to defy gravity, the sculptures of Lindsey De Ovies are often light on the surface, but multi-layered in message.
