Linda Lindus Fine Art
"My imagination calls me
to create, to interpret
what I see, and
paint what I feel.
As if in a dream,
I paint beyond
what is real by reaching for a deeper connection."
The origin of my creativity springs from inspirational surroundings, life experiences and nature's beauty. In traversing the challenges of merging nature with mankind’s structural intrusions, I attempt to capture their inherent artistic qualities. In addressing those juxtapositions, I interpret what I see through the lens of dream-like sequences and creating canvases that employ textural layers and bold use of color.
A deep passion for Arizona’s diverse landscape, serves as the departure point for much of my art. Although initial inspiration may come from viewing a sunset, cloudy day or rocky surface, I paint from an inward source, interpreting each setting or moment with intense feeling. My imagination calls me to create, to interpret what I see, and paint what I feel.
I apply a similar passion into my interpretive animal work where the lifelike is extended to touch the personality or character of the living being whether at rest, at play or in its role in nature.
While the rugged landscapes surrender to a brush or palette knife, creatures are brought to life on canvas. The resultant artworks transform into emotion, evoking a mood beyond the scene itself. As if in a dream, I paint beyond what is real by reaching for a deeper connection.
