Oil on Linen

Within the painting ‘Stairwell’ she plays with the established patriarchal motif of the nude.




Lindsey Jean McLean is a painter living and working in London. Her work questions the construct of femininity in art history and the impact that these have on our contemporary experience of gender, sexuality and power dynamics. McLean paints figures that are in movement and entangled, trapped in acts of concealment and destruction. She uses motifs such as feather boas, fans, swords and veils as transformative objects. Through this she creates a new space to view femininity as I subvert the historically patriarchal medium of oil paint.
