My artistic mission is twofold; on the one hand I want my internal images to find expression in the world while allowing the audience an opportunity to crystalize their own vagaries into enlightened expressions. My landscape paintings (perceptions) and the abstract expressionistic works are actually properties of the spirit not any real place, my spirit which I believe is not unique to me but also the province of all humans just disguised through their own cultural and societal experiences. The connecting mechanism that bridges different worlds, for me, is the painted canvas. It transcends the spoken work through images, colors, and shapes. My art is strongly influenced by my desire to unite people with a common bond, a bond of beauty and connection to their own inner landscapes.
Linda Stelling is an American artist living in Los Angeles whose work revolves around the curvilinear form. Recently, she has returned to her abstract roots and creates large colorful paintings that are meant to instill a psychic vibration. The blending of colors and abstract forms are meant to parallel the dynamics of internal desire; redirecting the viewer from expression to actuality.
Linda’s work can be seen as both explosive and magnetic; pulling the viewer into their own perceptions. Simply, it is art to invigorate.
Linda received her BFA in painting and ceramic sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She has taught art at all levels from children to adult. Her work is recognized in bothEurope and the US.
