Greg Lindquist is an artist and writer living in New York. He studied art and design as well as English literature at North Carolina State University and attended graduate school in New York at Pratt Institute, earning an MFA in painting and a master’s in art history. Lindquist co-edited the Art Books in Review Section of The Brooklyn Rail from 2011–17 and guest-edited Social Ecologies, a section of the publication on the ruptures and intersections of art and ecology that ran in November 2015. The piece was created in parallel with a show of the same name he curated at Rail Curatorial Projects, which will travel to Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia.

His recent paintings and participatory installations have focused on using the beauty of landscape and abstraction to raise awareness of environmental concerns.
