Reflecting on her personal experiences, and drawing upon the experiences of close friends and family, Lindsay’s work engages with ideas relating to growing up in a Scottish working-class environment. She is interested in the ways in which these areas shape those who are raised within them, and the culture of working-class youths. The research and inspiration behind her work comes from the town of Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, where she was brought up and continues to live in.
Through her multi-media practice Lindsay aims to explore and exhibit her own experiences within working-class culture, how she grew up, and the way in which it has shaped her as a person; pushing this personal exploration to involve the experiences of the wider area in which she resides, showing the relationships between the collective experiences of working-class youth. She is also interested in the way in which the working-class is represented and appropriated within the media, art, and society, and exploring the theoretical ideas underpinning this phenomenon through her work.
