Artist Nikki Lindt Takes a Sandy Sojourn

Nikki Lindt’s characters are often crouching or squatting, negotiating their way through beachy or muddy landscapes, or they are wobbling up pretty mountain paths. Has this girl lost a contact lens? Is she exhausted? Or is she attempting to commune with nature? In Lindt's paintings, it’s never clear and it’s endlessly intriguing. Lindt’s works hang amid a three-painter show at Heskin Contemporary in midtown. —Emma Pearse
