Lindsey Oberg

I am a mixed media encaustic painter. I combine old objects that are reminiscent of the past with my own personal history as a way for me to imagine back and have second chance or alternate experiences in life.  At the same time, this allows me to give a new life and a new story to each and every object that I use.  Each piece already has a history, already had a life, and reflecting back on that inspires my art.  I think about who might have owned it, or where it might have been, traveling back in time and ending with the object being given a whole new meaning and significance-- these forgotten memories that may have sat in drawers neglected for decades, now transformed and revitalized. 

Galleries: 

Les Yeux Du Monde

Lindsey is represented by Les Yeux du Monde (The Eyes of the World) located in the beautiful mountains of Charlottesville, Virginia. Not only is the setting stunning, but the Gallery itself is breathtaking. The gallery was designed by celebrated and revered W.G. Clark who serves as an architecture professor at the University of Virginia. 

Les Yeux du Monde enriches the community with regular artists talks and studio tours, among other events. Les Yeux du Monde collaborates on art exhibitions with other galleries in Charlottesville such as the University of Virginia Art Museum and Second Street Gallery

Les Yeux du Monde aspires to "open the eyes of the world" to the great expanse of contemporary arts. The Gallery has helped collectors across the United States attain works of art from Central Virginia Region artists and beyond.
