An Artist Statement by Linda Bigness
My work explores the interaction of line with color through layers of paint and drawing. The surfaces of the paintings reflect the gentle layering and subtle drawing applied through the process of painting. In the current series I play with shapes and line to create an interaction with color capturing the depth of light that consumes the void between the viewer and the work.

We hope you will join us for this extraordinary experience to learn from, and work with Ms. Bigness.
