Linda Mitchell: Seamless Stories
Linda Mitchell is above all a storyteller. Well known for her mixed-media paintings and installations, Mitchell tells her latest tales using the imagery of quilting. “The history inherent in scraps of fabric speaks of memory, experience, and personal expression,” writes Mitchell. “Pattern, with its infinite references in nature and human creation, creates a base of lively visual conversation....” This form of patterning provides the impetus for Mitchell’s body of work, which she refers to as “painted quilts.” The gallery will also be exhibiting a new group of mixed media paintings abstract paintings on aluminum by Paul Tamanian.
