Carroll Taylor-Lindoe (formerly Moppett) has exhibited widely in numerous group and solo exhibitions in both public and private galleries over a career spanning more than four decades. Her work can be found in many public and private collections across Canada. Included among these are the National Gallery of Canada, the Edmonton Art Gallery, the Glenbow Museum (Calgary) the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the McMichael Collection and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Ottawa, as well as major corporate collections and commissions.
In a wide ranging practice, including sculpture, painting, installations and a wide variety of works on paper, the development of a personal vocabulary was of particular importance as was, and is, her intensely sensed relationship with the natural environment.
In his review of Taylor-Lindoe’s last painting exhibition at WTG, Gary Michael Dault comments:
“Calgary artist Carroll Taylor-Lindoe, back when she was still Carroll Moppett, made maddeningly attractive little polychromed wall sculptures. Now… she is painting. And in reference to the major painting in the show: “this sumptuous work barely contains its’ own energies. Painted in a way that is paradoxically, lavishly sensuous and astringent…this consummately skillful painting brings together all the images in the artist’s arsenal…”
