Lindsay Smith Gustave lives and works in Denver, Colorado.

My work seeks to express the remnants of daily existence through visual artifact. It establishes a link between a landscape’s reality and that imagined by its observer. Visual reproduction of these specific moments infuses them with meaning by challenging the division between memory and immediate experience. I highlight overlooked moments for their ability to subconsciously construct our realities. In both my drawings and my sculptural works, production becomes meditative and deepens those memories. My works are divided into series to best represent the different facets of my practice: meaning making in daily spaces, meditations in space, and human experience.
