Linda Armantrout makes drawings and paintings. In 2008, the Power Images became the exhibit "Horse Power as Spirit". This body of work evolved to use the horse and bison as icons to connect to ancestors, making marks on marks. Included in the solo show was the Glory Series painted with reference to small plein air paintings. These two approaches have come together in the work shown last summer at Sellars Project Space in Salida, Colorado. The Spirit Messenger Series continues to be Linda’s focus in the Studio. See these paintings at Available Paintings.
To the viewer of these paintings, Linda offers this quote from Nick Ortner: “I heard them call your name…the Gods…the Ancients…the Universe…the All Knowing…the All Seeing… They Whispered… it’s time…its time for you to be you. It’s time for you to love more, give more, be more, live more…it’s time…and that time is now.”
