Artist's Bio

Lindell Lee McElfresh's career in advertising photography took him from Los Angeles and New York to six years abroad, based in Melbourne, Singapore, and, finally, Copenhagen, before returning to New York's Tribeca in 1990. At that time he decided to concentrate on painting, but within a year became intrigued - if not obsessed - by the artistic potential of computer imaging. Largely self-taught, many of his earliest computer work is now locked away on archaic storage media. Since then he has created thematic groups of prints utilizing images scanned from his painting and photography. His recent work has been inspired by Venice, where he and his wife live when not at home in Manhattan. His current project is based on the monuments and iconography of Il Cimitero di S. Michele.
