Lindsey Bull's paintings explore fleeting and fragmentary instances where reality, illusion and the fantastical merge and shift the everyday into realms of spiritual, ritualistic or psychedelic perceptions. Referencing fashion magazines, occult magazines and film stills, her paintings often depict complicated, dark, idiosyncratic or misunderstood psychologies enveloped by abstract spaces, resulting in images that rest between the seen and the hidden.
Bull is based in Manchester and graduated with an MA from Chelsea College of Art in 2009. Bull has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and internationally including Italy, Sweden, France and China.
Notable exhibitions include Beauty and Sadness, Yellow, Varese, Italy (2015 solo), In Disguise, High House gallery, Oxon (2013 solo) and with Griffin Gallery, London; Transition Gallery, London; Warrington Museum & Art gallery, Warrington; Bloc Projects, Sheffield; APT Gallery, London and UAL Arts Gallery, London. Bull is the recipient of the Motorcade/FlashParade National Open Prizewinner 2011, the Red Mansion Art Prize and residency 2010 and the Associazione Stralis residency, Milan 2011.
