A Free event taking place on May 20th…. The Poetry of Color is a Los Angeles exhibition of paintings by artist Linda Stelling. The exhibition can be seen May 20-June 3, 2017 at the Artists Corner Gallery, 1546 Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Opening Reception is Saturday, May 20, 7:00–10:00 PM. Admission is free.
Linda Stelling is a Los Angeles artist who fills her canvases with the poetry of color. The images she conjures up are point and counterpoint to the verse that she writes. Stelling is a visceral artist who also contemplates her inner life on canvas. Phosphorescent, phantasmagorical color pours out of her mind’s eye and saturates each of Stelling’s artworks.
The painter abstracts figurative images infused with her own bright, incendiary palette. Her curvy, undulating depictions of feathers, flowers, land and seascapes organically tumble together as she reconfigures their shapes. Stelling feels that, “my paintings are meant to instill a psychic vibration. The blending of colors and abstract forms are meant to parallel the dynamics of internal desire, redirecting the viewer from expression to actuality.” Don’t miss this exciting art event.
