Please join us for the opening reception as we unveil new works by abstract artist Linda Touby. Thursday, March 26th from 5pm-8pm. Artist will be in attendance.
Linda Touby's abstract paintings are meditative in size and seductive in color. The artist pairs intuitive brushstrokes with bold, horizontal bands of vibrant color offering a sense of balance and harmony. The restrained, calming palette gains intensity and an illusion of spatial depth and volume through the artist's employment of the Renaissance technique of layering the surface with wax, dry pigment and thick glazes. At times Touby's wild, visceral brushstrokes even harness an expressionist spirit. These combined qualities bring her canvases to life, gently pulling the viewer into the depths of the artist's subconscious.
A native of Florida, Touby moved to New York as a teenager where she began her studies at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She continued training at the Art Student's League and later the National Academy of Art. Touby's works have been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries internationally including the Museum Fur Konkrete Kunst Ingolstadt (1999), Germany. Her paintings are also housed in several permanent collections including the U.S. State department, Washington D.C.
