If art is not a cure, it can be a balm. “X Marks the Spot” is among Linwood’s latest works, completed just as our time of social distancing commenced. Thoughtful and meditative, this mixed-media on canvas is a bit of an homage to midcentury masters, especially Miró. Yet, the finished work is all today. Note the layers of paint, the artist’s grafitti, and industrial drawings paired with amorphous graphic shapes. The color palette – blue and gold, black and white – is a modern art meditation for our times. Beautifully framed in Gold.
CUSTOM COMMISSIONS: Linwood originals are indeed just that: one-of-a-kind creations. Please know, however, that Linwood loves personal commissions. Perhaps an already-sold work of art speaks to you. Maybe you’re intrigued by piece, but desire a change in size, palette, material or content. We should talk. Linwood never repeats himself, but an existing piece may inform a new original, expressly for you. The creative process can even be collaborative with regard to dimensions and color preferences. Where to begin? The custom process starts with an email.
