The Art Portfolio of Painter and Photographer Linda Richardi

Linda Richardi is a painter and photographer currently living and working in California. In her practice, Linda produces works of abstraction and figuration, working with the advantages and quirks of each of her chosen media.

I like the way that Linda incorporates mixed media into her paintings. In paintings on canvas and wood panel, Linda uses a mixture of metallic leaf, paint, and various other media to create a layered, three-dimensional appearance for figurative subjects, abstractions, and blends of the two. It’s fascinating to see the variety of different colours and textures present in Linda’s works, and the way that she uses them to build up both recognizable imagery -- human figures, objects -- and abstract planes of colour and texture.

Linda’s photography seems equally concerned with texture, though in this case it’s the texture of natural formations -- rocks, trees, and water, for example. It’s easy to draw parallels between the subjects of Linda’s photographs, and those that she renders in paint.
