Linda Adams | לינדה אדמס
Linda Adams is a Canadian-Israeli artist who lives and works in Jerusalem. A graduate of the Jerusalem Studio School (JSS) Master Class Program, she is also a member of the Studio of Her Own group. Her work is primarily figurative, including portraiture, still life and landscape. Building on her strong classical foundation in composition and form, she currently work in the colorist traditions, both from observation and invented scenes.
“When I look at the world, I see surfaces and the meeting points between them.
I paint to enter that interior and find meaning in what reflects back to me, to bridge the gap between what I see and my inner experience. To me, that is as true of nature as it is of still life or even my own reflection in the mirror – all of which surprise equally.
I am more interested in the mood, the moment, than in the objects themselves... and then, the new representation itself becomes a new beginning.”
