LINDA HERTZ: CURRENT WORK
SEPTEMBER 6 - SEPTEMBER 29, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 3-6 PM
For the past decade, Linda Hertz has exhibited her art in the Berkshires and South Florida. In developing her mixed media abstract art she has explored the colors and textures of the two diverse locations where she has lived.
Her goal is for the viewer to see layers of hidden shapes and colors beyond the surface and continue to travel within the painting.
“I am happiest when the layers of paint and texture create another dimension on the substrate.
When I first began creating, I was intrigued with collage and how my abstract ideas would unfold with the layers of textures, colors and shapes. As I began exploring acrylics, I discovered how mixed media provides me with endless possibilities. Often hand-painted paper, yarn, metals and found objects are added to the mix.
Hertz works in series and, as a rhythm develops, finds the freedom to move along creating variations on the theme. Soon her imagination takes over and artistic story enfolds.
