Large Forms, Color and Contour: Art by Linda Lang
Painter Linda Lang maintains an art practice that’s informed by expeditions to the Arctic circle, as well as conversations with conservation scientists and members of the Inuit community. Linda’s painting style is one that celebrates large forms, color and contour.
Linda’s style – smoothly blended brush marks, planes of color, and the occasional gradient – seems ideal for depicting the artist’s chosen subject matter. I love how the artist’s Arctic landscapes seem to both the cold and the expansive majesty of that landscape. Many of the images are reminiscent of works by Canadian artist Ted Harrison.
In our previous feature of Linda’s glaciers, polar bears and seascapes, we looked at the conservationist aspects of the artist’s practice. Linda is the founder of the Polar Artists Group and has led discussions on Arctic conservation around the world. I’m Looking forward to seeing how the artist’s portfolio has progressed in recent years.
