This is an image of the beginning of my installation "Social Structure 2".This incarnation of Social Structure is a city out of clay that will stack better on the gallery wall and it will be more cohesive. I just had to get this idea right...the first one I sold off building by building. I might sell these that way too...not sure.The buildings average about 9 inches-ish. The entire thing will be approximately 80 "buildings" and should be about 10' x 15'. I will show it at Core Gallery, 900 Santa Fe Drive, in Denver. In the heart of the Santa Fe Arts District..The show opens June 1, 6-9pm. Which is also First Friday (very Festive). There will be an additional artists reception on June 15, 6-9pm.
I will also be debuting "Symbiotic Revolutionary Army" which is basically a battalion of goddesses...Im hoping to make at least 100...We have been living like parasites on planet Earth and we need to get to symbiosis if we are going to save the planet and humanity...mutually beneficial living. The Goddesses basically represent plant, human and animal peacefully coexisting. If you look in my "portfolio" under new work you can see some Goddesses.
I make message driven art because I believe we can use art to help change the " f...ed up world. I am trying to affect compassion in viewers.
Linda studied art at the University of Colorado and then had a family and a job that consumed most of her time for 35 years. She has been fortunate to turn back to her artwork full time for the last four years. She shows locally, regionally and nationally. She enjoys supporting the art community in her hometown by participating in Artwalk, Longmont Studio Tour and other local events. She installed 150 ceramic birds at the Longmont Museum as a part of her Capistrano series and facilitated a collaborative project on the same topic at the Salud Medical Clinic in Longmont. She has volunteered art teaching at Soft Voices, a drop in center for mentally ill people in Longmont. She recently completed a mosaic mural with those folks. She also shows nationally in nationally mostly in select shows in Chicago and NYC.
She is most proud of her recent inclusion in the National Womens Caucus for the Arts Best of 2014 show in Chicago and of their 2015 show, "WCA at Westbeth" and now April, 2016 featured artist on their Website. She was in the company of some really amazing internationally known artists there and she felt very honored to be included.
