Lindsey Clark-Ryan


Hillyer Hall L08F


Lindsey Clark-Ryan is a multidisciplinary artist who works primarily in installation and printmaking to investigate what takes place at the precarious boundaries between two-dimensional graphic images and three-dimensional objects, between mobile and stationary, and between function and uselessness. Her work in these areas often involves a deadpan approach to the sensibilities of scientific expeditions and archival research. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally and regularly participates in site-specific residency programs as an important extension of her studio process. Most recently, she has been an artist-in-residence at the Ayatana Artistic Research Program in Canada and the Elsewhere living museum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Clark-Ryan teaches printmaking, drawing and interdisciplinary studio art courses at Smith, and she is currently working on prints and artists' books built from the narrative and kinetic capacities of parachutes.
