Celebrating Fatness Through Art -- Lindsey Guile Fat Joy with Sophia Apostol

    • Mentale Gesundheit

Artist Lindsey Guile (she/her) draws charcoal images of nude, fat people…on canvases that are eight-feet tall. Her fat bodies literally take up space and tower over viewers. Lindsey shares what motivated her to embrace fat liberation (spoiler: gallbladder disease and an eating disorder) and use her artistic talents to challenge the hierarchy of art.

Lindsey Guile is a body and fat-liberation artist exploring concepts of self-image through the lens of contemporary feminist theory. Lindsey’s practice embraces an intermedia approach that utilizes drawing, printmaking, and ceramics in her explorations into how body image affects self- worth. Her work has been exhibited at The Arnot Museum, The Dorsky Museum, The Birke Art Gallery, The Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Gallery, Untitled Space Gallery, Women’s Work Gallery, The Williamsburg art & Historical Center, and more. She was an Artist in Residence at the Blue Mountain Center in the summer of 2021.

Lindsey is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at Dutchess Community College. She is also the Director of the Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery on campus. She has an MFA from SUNY New Paltz and a BFA and MA degrees from SUNY Oswego. Lindsey currently lives in Poughkeepsie, New York.

This episode’s poem is called “Keeping Still” by Pablo Neruda.
