LINWOOD

American, born, 1966

Linwood is an Atlanta-based artist and former gallery owner primarily known for his figurative and landscape portraits.


For his most recent work, Linwood turns his artist eye to the abstract modern movement. Bateau-as-vessel imagery, suggestive of life's journey and a rich symbol of transcendence, is a recurrent theme throughout Linwood's latest exhibits. Color play is also striking, as seemingly discordant hues harmonize under the artist's brush. Linwood is a master of mixed media, unifying disparate materials, including acrylic, oil pastel, pencil and even found objects collaged on the canvas. 


While the artist (and the art) challenges each viewer to find meaning in the work, a sense of beauty born of chaos echoes through the exhibit. Joy is an omnipresent theme. Each piece is an original, signed by the artist, and available through selected galleries.
