Nikki Lindt is particularly interested in using her work to express the relationship between humans and their natural environment. This is inspired in many ways; her longstanding concern with environmental destruction, her love of spending time outdoors, and her not always so graceful attempts to physically maneuver through actual landscapes. Her paintings have a rhythm which is based on the visual movement of taking in a landscape and often paired with the gesture of her small painted figure’s trek through the piece.
Nikki received her MFA from Yale University in 1997 and just this past year received the Pollock Krasner Grant. In 2002 she received the Environmental Cultural Award/Grant from the Dutch Environmental Protection Agency and the Basic Subsidy Grant from the Dutch Funding for the Arts Program. The artist has been in several group and solo exhibitions at Heskin Contemporary.
