LINDA PETERSEN ARTIST STATEMENT
I feel that life is about change, movement, discovery and reward.
Recently, I made a geographical change in my life, moving from the mountains to the coast. This change brought about a movement from one area of interest in the way I expressed my artwork, to a completely different approach in my creative process. I discovered that the sea gave me the gift of seeing from the inside out.
Each day brought new rewards – jewels coming from the sky and the sea. I was compelled to interpret these images, embrace what I saw and put them on aluminum and wood using acrylic paint.
To me, the rewards were magical. The results were exactly as I had hope they would be, giving each piece the luminous quality I was searching to achieve.
For me, the move to the sea gave me the gift of seeing – with my heart.
