Greg Lindquist (born 1979) is an American artist (painting, sculpture, installation), living and working in New York City.

Biography[edit]

Greg Lindquist was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, graduated from Emsley A. Laney High School in 1997, studied art and English at North Carolina State University and attended graduate school in New York at Pratt Institute, earning a MFA in painting and masters in art history. During graduate school, Lindquist was a research intern at the Museum of Modern Art. He also worked as an assistant for the artist Ryan McGinness. Lindquist's work primarily addresses landscape as a memorial, presently documenting parts of former industrial Brooklyn as they are developed into luxury condos in Williamsburg and Red Hook. Recently, his work has encompassed the entropic in architecture, traveling to Tbilisi, Georgia to research decay from the Soviet Union era.

Critical reception[edit]

  • Wonderfully, Lindquist seems to be captivated by the possibilities and presences of painting as much as he is by any ideological drive, and he achieves a tense ambiguity as beauty and rue vie for control of his panoramic canvases. --Art in America
  • Lindquist conveys the weird beauty of mounds of debris, weed-choked pavements, and walls covered in graffiti, over which cranes often loom like sci-fi apparitions. --ARTnews
  • Greg Lindquist['s] cityscapes bring a Morandi-esque blur to subjects that recall Rackstraw Downes. -- artinfo.com
  • Lindquist makes spooky paintings of industrial Brooklyn that capture the raw charm of the borough without the syrupy sentimentalism that so many have for spaces like the Williamsburg waterfront or desolate stretches of Red Hook. -- New York Press
