Lucinda Linderman “Self Portrait”

 

Lucinda Linderman, a native to Chattanooga, Tennessee, is a recognized environmental artist and environmental art curator living and working in Miami, Florida. She explains: “As consumers, we purchase, use, and throw things away, never thinking of the items again. Looking at this linear production, I collect industrial and post consumer packaging, which becomes the building blocks of my sculptures.

She shares, “This material, disregarded by many, has its own history of travel from factory to store, being created to be thrown away. I highlight the inherent value, leaving traces of what was, transforming the material into something new, playful, through my hands adding value to these discarded materials”.

Chinese Brush Painting by Susan Wilders

As Susan says, “Teachers open the door, but you must enter”. She entered that door twenty years ago and feels the joy of Chinese painting has enriched her life. Underlying the simplicity of the composition is a philosophy that sees a unifying pattern of life in all natural forms. Bamboo signifies the will to survive; the orchid represents the Yin energy; the plum blossoms re-emergence and continuity of life and the chrysanthemum associates fragrant plants with ideals of moralistic behavior and the changing of the seasons.

Chinese Brush Painting by Susan Wilders

From these four, all subjects can be created with beautiful strokes and the right amount of ink, water and pressure. The spirit of the brush brings flowers, birds, animals and landscapes to life.
