While grappling with laborious actions of ritual and repetition much of Lindsay-Snow's recent work engages 

notions of mortality, cycle, and the temporal through the poetic gesture.  

Through installation, performance and sculpture; and the use of multiples, process, the surreal, and uncanny:

Lindsay-Snow collaborates in moments of pause, re-centering, and questioning.

They see the process of making art as a practice of asking questions, research, and wonder.

Originally from a small town in Upstate New York, Lindsay-Snow has lived the last thirteen years in Chicago

where they obtained a Bachelor's of Arts in Conflict Transformation and in Art.  

Lindsay-Snow then received an MFA at the University of Illinois in visual arts with a graduate minor in dance.

"As I am filled with questions: I continue to want to cover things in wax,

find points of teeter and balance, melt ice, recede into wall cocoons, hold gazes,

write salt poems, and hammer stones.  I wonder if this is of coping, salve, or mourning. 

I wonder if this is of distracting, re-rooting, or centering. 

Always I wonder how and if I should offer this to you."
