Linda Mitchell

Loft: E119


Linda Mitchell creates visually and emotionally packed narratives using animal figures and ordinary objects in surreal surroundings. Her current mixed media series combines painting with digital photography, patterned fabrics and found elements. Various elements include: the child-like innocence and vulnerability of play-dough figures; the sweetness and trust in a dog’s face; the spontaneous emotion of a child’s drawing; the beauty of a flower or an autumn leaf; a forgotten photograph. Combined in sophisticated assemblages, these tell complex stories of this temporary life. Personal images and quiet symbols often lie under a scarred surface, the intricate cracks and tears that time inevitably leaves on each physical object and soul. Visit www.lindamitchell.30art.com .
