MaryLindaís work, an abstracted embodiment of our emotional and spiritual experiences, has an ancient, earthy quality. It delves into the ephemeral, the transitional, the transformative in ourselves, the vulnerable point from which we come to a new awareness of self. Whether bronze, wax, wood, stone, plaster, natural fibers or in her multi media and performative works, the use of materials is aesthetically engaging, but also presents a concept essential to the work. Exploring issues of fragility, exposure and protection, dissipation, insufficiency and the need for nourishment they relate to the body and its processes, and have a unique quality in the use of organic matter in conjunction with other materials. Depicting the body and its functions she suggests our spiritual and actual, physical connection to the earth in its most basic elements, with its continual, perpetual sloughing off and regeneration. The intricacy of detail and the sensuality of surface invites an intimate, fresh look at how we experience the body and ourselves.
