What is happening
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic all plans for near future openings and exhibitions have been put on hold. It is a very difficult time for so many and like most artists I am aware of the seriousness as well as the precautions that must be taken to help save lives. Please listen to the news and updates and stay in place. My place is my studio and I will continue to work on paintings to be ready for our new world when it happens. I believe we will suffer great losses and our lives will be forever changed so my work is centered on hope and deliberate positive and optimistic thinking. Let's take care of each other and hope for the best. be kind, be respectful, stay focused and I will look forward to seeing all of you in the future. LB
studio245Linda Bigness is an internationally exhibited artist who maintains a gallery/studio in Syracuse, New York. Her work has been exhibited in several prestigious solo and group shows that have involved notable jurors such as art critic Clement Greenberg, Ivan Karp, director of OK Harris Gallery in NYC, and Tom Piche, director of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition, Bigness’ large scale paintings are often selected and commissioned for corporate and residential clients, including the Turning Stone Resort, Merrill Lynch Corporation, Haylor, Freyer and Coon, and Bausch and Lomb. She continues to exhibit professionally at several venues with artwork featured frequently at the Nan Miller Gallery in Rochester, NY. Presently she is working on her latest book and exhibition about abstract art and the contemporary processes used by working artists today. Part of the research for this book is taken from the workshops she teaches and her oil painting and mixed media collage experience. For over 30 years Bigness has used her expertise to share with others the unique beauty and processes of her chosen medium through writing, teaching and professional exhibits. Her first book “Paint It, Tear It, Create It” offered the reader insight into visual abstract thinking through the process of collage into painting. She continues to explore the abstract through surface manipulation using encaustics and oil and is currently working on a new series, the “Journey Stones Revisited,” a reflection upon her extensive travels throughout the United States and Europe.
