Lindsay Burck is a visual artist who plays with light and color in unprecedented ways. While growing up in Corpus Christi, Texas, Burck occasionally experimented with the joys of the spectrum—and mostly channeled it into digital artworks. After graduating cum laude from Texas State University – San Marcos with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design, Burck worked as a graphic and typographic artist for 10 years before pursuing fine art. Burck is driven by the desire to express what it was like to visit an other-dimensional place after a traumatic brain injury and major surgery following a serious bicycle accident in 2015.
Burck struggled with returning to a life of normalcy after this incident, and painting is one of the major factors that allowed for bringing healing back to life. She knew she wanted to be an artist while sitting in a session with a recovery coach, a few weeks from being released from the hospital. This coach carefully crafted questions that allowed Burck to see fears up-close and personally, and she remembers the exact moment when the coach asked, “are you willing to be an artist?” Though there was fear at the time, eventually the answer was a resounding, “Yes—I am an artist!”
Burck works to help visitors to her studio feel a calm, energetic presence, to experience joy, and to create peacefulness inside. The artwork is balanced between darks and lights, warms and cools, and the brightness is like no other. The path to becoming a full-time artist was unforeseen, and riddled with bumps. Burck is determined to advocate for mental health through art, and align with that which created life through creating artwork. The world has an opportunity to fall more deeply in love with physical spaces when these artworks adorn peoples’ homes and offices.
