Linden Godlove's art explores connections of life and how we are elements of a greater world.
In encaustic, acrylic, oil, and other mediums, the paintings delve into the subtler nuances of human nature, often incorporating anatomical elements and woodland motifs.
Linden (formerly exhibiting as Lindsey Harnish) strives to capture the ineffable: scattered notions, vague dreams, but also the endurance of beauty amidst the dark. Her art is a meditation on the symbiotic relationship of all life: humans, animals, plants and how they intertwine and have cohesion.
Her work, an eclectic blend of techniques from Art Nouveau and Lowbrow to the whims of children’s picture books, has been exhibited throughout metro Detroit, including the Scarab Club, the Detroit Artists Market, and Hatch.
Linden Godlove is a transplant to the Detroit area. She enjoys discovering the area, from high culture, lowbrow and searching for the unexpected in the seemingly commonplace. She draws inspiration from Detroit, an archaic sense of romance, and rabbits she has loved. She works out of her studio at 333 Midland in Highland Park, Michigan.
