Announcement    Gallery of Lindy Gifford's digital montages combining original photographs of patterns in nature with space art & old black and white images in fine art prints on paper and canvas. The combinations make for distinctive, eye-catching, yet affordable, contemporary art for the home or office. Lindy creates her unorthodox icons by combining more than one of her own nature photographs—including pictures of flowers, trees, water, rock, butterflies, clouds, and shells—together, and with NASA images of the earth and the universe, old engravings, and her original paintings or pen and ink drawings. In the process, she creates inspired art for a modern iconography worthy of a more sustainable world.

Intimate portraits of the changing colors of the seasons in New England and textures and patterns in nature are at the heart of Lindy Gifford's "green" art, often blended in digital montages with iconic images of the planet Earth itself and Hubble telescope views of the Universe. All the colors of nature are then sometimes combined with old black and white images, in the form of Victorian engravings as well as more ancient and archetypal symbols. But we also know that humor is as essential as any other important part of life, so unorthodox icons often contain some ironic images and gentle tongue in cheek humor and might even occasionally stray into the arena of political humor.

All unorthodox icons are high quality, highly affordable art—giclee prints created with archival quality inks on acid free paper and canvas—so they'll last a lifetime without breaking the bank. All are signed by Lindy Gifford, the artist: some are open editions and some are limited editions. Many are available framed or unframed. Several items can be personalized for a very thoughtful gift or a memento of a special occasion.

This is art that makes you feel good while you can feel good about buying it.

Welcome to Unorthodox Icons, your source of fine art prints on paper and canvas featuring iconic images and green art for the home and office. Interesting and unusual, but also beautiful and uplifting, this art is guaranteed to make you feel good.

We create our "Icons" (as in an iconic image, not a smiley face on your computer screen) by combining more than one of Lindy Gifford's original photographs, together, and with NASA images of the earth and the universe, historic engravings, and her own paintings or pen and ink drawings. Sometimes they're combined digitally, sometimes physically, as cut and torn paper, and sometimes both. Lindy enjoys exploring, navigating, and interweaving both the digital/hand-made and modern/traditional boundaries, in the process combining seemingly disparate elements into a vision of life on the Earth at this particular time—with all it's challenges and opportunities. Without humor, however, most of us would never make it to the next evolutionary step at all, so look for some wry commentary and tongue in cheek imagery in this art.
