Dancing hands rhythmically apply color, line, and texture to paper across and down in grid-like structures. These elemental shapes, the square and the rectangle, are challenged to assert themselves, or retreat, explode with color, hide in corners, reside on petite papers, or spread out on larger formats. More recent drawings have invited in ambiguous shapes, dispersed textures, collage and decollage.
After a career as one of the first female Art Directors in American advertising, Linda Miller was able to create art of her own purpose and vision. As an art student, she studied Oil Painting with Philip Pearlstein, Esteban Vicente, and Ad Reinhardt. In recent years, Linda has concentrated on abstract drawing with virtually pure pigments: intensely colored, soft, and metallic pastels introduced to her by the Artist/Teacher Meredith Rosier. Exhibitions include: The Doghouse Gallery, Saugerties, NY; Atlantic Gallery, NYC; The Wired Gallery, Stone Ridge, NY; The Woodstock Artist Association/Museum (Doris Lee/Elfriede Borkmann Award, Best in Show)
