ARTIST STATEMENT

“Lyndsay Allyn Cox is not concerned with producing work that's palatable for white audiences. Her priority lies in elevating Black artistry.” - Candace McDuffie / WBUR The ARTery 


This quote by my good friend, writer Candace McDuffie, sums up in less than 140 characters my philosophy on art making. I live and breathe by the mantra that we can push through discomfort by naming it, owning it, and pushing past it. Change happens when shit gets gnarly. I seek artistic experiences that allow me the opportunity to engage audiences in sitting within their discomfort and hopefully making it through to the other side. 


As a queer, Jewish, woman of color I utilize my platform as an artist and educator, in its entirety, to combat racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism, xenophobia, antisemitism, and any other -isms or phobias that seek to oppress marginalied people. I believe in the healing power of art. I believe in the transformative power of art.
