DESCRIPTION

Bleicher/Golightly presents the solo exhibit by Linda Smith. Linda’s work is a wild display of pattern, color, and texture through her paintings and ceramics. Her expressive language was inspired by Picasso and Matisse, as she emulates their usage of bright colors and their graphic style. Each piece of artwork whimsically takes us on a journey through her life and comments on present day social issues. Using the motif of bodies and heads she expresses the human condition through expressive detail. This characteristic makes her artwork relatable and approachable while still sometimes dealing with darker areas of the psyche.

Free reception parking: valet under the building  (after stamp validation from the bar at the gallery). Enter via the large 1431 sign, just past the gallery on Ocean Ave.
