Lindsey Mendick

Lindsey Mendick is an artist that champions exultant and unforgiving feminism. Working predominantly in ceramic and fabric, her works are often seen as obscene or flamboyant in character, filled with melodrama and vivacious colour. Through an amalgam of autobiography and myth, Mendick’s work makes explicit reference to the female body and its liberation, to questions of self-esteem and her own personal history of intimacy and loss.
