William Lindley. Artist
I am a visual artist based in London, UK. My work spans works on paper, objects, moving image and installation and is presented in various settings including galleries, concert halls, theatres, museums and historic buildings.
Rooted in drawing, my work emerges from historical and contemporary explorations and research, combining documentary and intuitive approaches. I draw upon a wide range of sources and inspirations to create works incorporating drawing, intaglio, film, projection and installation, combining traditional techniques with contemporary processes. I often respond to research through improvised making, creating work which is rooted to place, but when presented back into its original setting seeks to open places up to new interpretations and create a dialogue with history.
I work as an individual and in community and collaborative settings, sometimes incorporating workshops and participation into the development of my work. I enjoy working collaboratively with other artists and makers, and have recently been working with musicians to incorporate moving image into performance.
