Linda Celestian’s recent paintings are an exploration of the traits, behaviors and qualities of water. Linda is interested in portraying the energy and life force of nature to elicit an emotional response. She is inspired as much by aerial photography, as by personal observations of the ocean, lakes of her childhood, and the creek in her neighborhood.
Her paintings are made with thinned down oil paint poured on primed canvas, which is allowed to run and make patterns similar to waterways. There is a correlation between these imaginary waterways and our own circulatory system illustrating the connection between earth and mankind.
