Greg Lindquist is an artist whose paintings and photographs depict specific places whose political, economic and physical forces alter our land and lives. While his networks of color abstract paintings at first suggest placid landscapes, upon closer inspection appear unsettling, sickly and toxic. Lindquist’s most recent paintings have addressed Duke Energy’s spill of coal ash into the Dan River. He also writes and edits art criticism for various publications. He will have an exhibition of paintings with the artist Damian Stammer in fall of 2015 at the North Carolina Museum of Art.
