'The Interconnectedness of Things'
By Linda Gordon
A small exhibition of semi-abstract paintings and drawings by Linda Gordon making their exhibition debut at The Brain Charity as part of the Fabric District Arts Festival 2019. The works were chosen by the artist as they echo the Festival's theme of 'Social Fabric'. Curated by Nanette Mellor CEO of The Brain Charity.
Each of the works was drawn using one continuous line, there is no beginning and no end, reflecting the continuum of life, the interconnectedness of everything. Depicting an animal and three birds, only one work 'Deity' depicts a human. They convey the fact that all creatures are sentient beings and for the most part social and gregarious. It is in and through community that our lives begin and we live and achieve things. The works comment on both human and animal worlds and also their intersection. The artist is of the belief that each species of creature has its own separate and unique emotion, unique unto itself, that no other species shares. Almost all creatures live within their own social aggregations, as well as being interconnected, some sharing their lives socially with humans.
The exception to this is the drawing 'Way There' which conveys a journey of any kind. Here each shape and line is intersected, nothing is in isolation, bringing a coherent and inherent interconnectedness to the work.
The artist is self-taught predominantly producing abstract and semi-abstract work to convey that which cannot be depicted otherwise. She has participated in several art projects and exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally.
Limited edition prints signed, titled and numbered by the artist will be available of:
