Linda Stillman is an artist who works in various media, investigating concepts of time, memory and nature.
She is especially interested in the passage of time in nature, how plants grow and die and how people try to preserve the memory of their fleeting beauty. She investigates people’s relation to gardening and to plants, especially flowers in the home and in the urban environment.
She works in her studios in New York City and upstate New York. Stillman is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, the School of Visual Arts and received her MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She has been awarded fellowships at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts Mark program, the Wave Hill Winter Workspace and the studios at Mass MoCA.
Stillman's work has been featured in many exhibitions in places such as the Dorsky Museum, Hunter College Art Galleries and the Brooklyn Museum. Stillman’s art work has been reviewed in print publications and blogs and is included in select private and museum collections.
