About Artist/Photographer Mark Lindquist

Mark Lindquist has been photographing for over 45 years and is an internationally recognized artist working in several media. Having completed studies in sculpture, painting, photography, and art history at the undergraduate and graduate level, Lindquist is an author and designer, a polymath able to function with equal ease in many areas, including metal machining, wood sculpture, robotics, design and building, painting, and photography. His photographic work over the past 45 years encompasses many genres of photography, including product, nature, portrait, and documentary. Over the past 15 years he has pursued his keen interest in creating abstract motion blur images and calls upon his art history background in Asian art and postmodernism to inform his work on several levels.

Lindquist says: " I think of myself as a well-rounded artist, capable of tackling whatever comes to mind and hand. I can draw, paint, sculpt, turn, machine, throw, fire, cut, paste, and create as well as destroy. At this point in life, I'm mostly interested in doing what I want on any given day, and that often depends upon the weather and my mood."
Lindquist's current passion is creating abstract art with the camera. He says, "If I make art with the camera in the sense of moving the camera around the way I might move a brush or a chainsaw bar, I think carefully about whether to employ robotics or simply do it by hand."

Lindquist's passion for photography includes the printing process. With 4 HP Z Series large format printers, Lindquist is expert at creating fine art prints with 200 year archival longevity. He knows the machines from inside out and works on them when they have problems.

His art works are in many private and corporate collections, as well as major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Philadelphia Museum of Art, PA; the Art Institute of Chicago; Yale University Art Gallery, CT; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the White House, Washington, DC; Bank of America Corporate Collection, NC; Hewlett Packard Corporate Collection, Barcelona, Spain, among many others.

The Smithsonian American Art Museum hosted his 25 year retrospective exhibition in 1995.

The Gadsden Arts Center and Museum, Gadsden County, FL, hosted his 40 year retrospective exhibition in 2010.
