Commissioned for the Children in Hospitals Project, this work uses the medium of digital printing to create a fresh contemporary image of urban culture. Lindsey has an ongoing interest in dance and in this series draws upon the theme of the body against the cityscape to explore the effect of music and urban culture on the lives of ordinary people.

Born in Paisley in 1976, Lindsey Nelson graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1998, specialising in Printmaking. She has most recently worked as a silkscreen technician at Glasgow School of Art. Her artwork functions as escapism from what she perceives as the mundane nature of everyday urban life. Music and dance heavily influences her work and the bold colour contrasts relate to club culture of the 1990s and the hallucinatory effects of drugs associated with club culture. Lindsey is also interested in the use of computer technology to create art and make it accessible to a wider range of people.

As well as producing her own work, she runs a Dance School in Bishopriggs where she teaches pre-school to student level classes. Believing that her awareness of dance and music must inform her visual art, Lindsey wants her work to combine an awareness of the mass media and its effects on people's lives with the release which music can grant us in our everyday lives.
