Linda earned a B.Ed. from S.F.U. in Burnaby, B.C. and attended the Emily Carr Art University, Vancouver, B.C. Her focus is contemporary painting inspired from study at Vancouver Island School of Art, Victoria, B.C. She is an active member of the Victoria arts community with Active status in the Federation of Canadian Artists and a member of the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria. Her work is represented at The Gage Gallery, Oak Bay and the Art Rentals Gallery of Greater Victoria.
Linda’s paintings, on exhibition at the Gage Gallery from May 3 to May 21, have a persuasive sense of depth, drama and play. Her compositions combine coloured spaces with bold hard edges, to create a variety of interactive spaces. Linda’s paintings interfuse perceptual and imaginary space. The result is illusory space, a projected plane of scale and colour that becomes part of an intimate physical encounter. These are ambiguous abstract paintings, where boundaries dissolve, old perspectives are contested and new experiences and possibilities are created.
The show, “Just Infinite”, is an invitation to connect with life's inherent magical qualities.
