Linda Koenig Artist Statement
Be outside. Embrace solitude. See with fresh eyes. Write. These are tools of my studio practice, actions that come before and in conjunction with the application of paint, habits that inform the work. Alongside my sketchbooks are dictionaries, both old and new, and an assortment of journals for thoughts, lists, random words that intrigue me. Often the title of a painting comes first, then the concept, with brushes and paint last.
The core of the work? Beauty, order, harmony.
