untitled still life
Linda Larsen (1947- ) was born in Huntington, NY. She is a printmaker, sculptor and painter. The artist states: "The work I have been making since 1965 is tied thematically to the exploration of perceived forms of mental slavery, suppression and imprisonment of the human mind at the hands of whatever hierarchical/authoritative body might be governing the individual. The emotional contradictions found in the human figure are interesting to me and I look for ways to contrast and compare these states of freedom and ultimate self-autonomy through painting, printmaking and drawing.
