“We all have our odysseys--our periods of adventures and searching. Sometimes, we do so without leaving our living room,” artist Linden comments. “These paintings are my quest to consider the inner workings of humanity (in the case of my anatomical paintings,) our timeless drive (as illustrated in my mythological series), and space bunnies, which is my laughing way of illustrating our curiosity of the yet undiscovered.”
Linden illustrates translucent interpretations of the anatomical human, drawing parallels between our internal workings and the natural world. “My art is a meditation on the symbiotic relationship of all life: humans, animals, plants and how they intertwine and have cohesion.” Other paintings feature mythological creatures springing around the buildings of Detroit. Her series of space bunny paintings are self-explanatory.
