ARTISTS' COOPERATIVE GALLERY OF WESTERLY
Featured artist Linda King, from North Kingston, RI, specializes in mixed media. Ms. King enjoys capturing the power of the sea crashing against the rocky coastline and is intrigued by its ever changing coloration and textures created by the weather patterns commonly seen in New England. She has experience working with different media, but enjoys working in acrylics and collage. Her work focuses on texture and dimension through her use of paper and mixed media to create depth and movement. “I love the texture and dimension that different papers add to the composition, combining the fluidity of wet on wet acrylic paint to create movement, and the textures of torn paper to bring solidity.” She finds inspiration for compositions by focusing on the abstract forms of everyday scenes and subjects in nature. She enjoys painting on nautical charts of local harbors as well as her personal favorite, high surface illustration board.
King attributes her success to other local New England artists she has worked alongside over the years as well as her mentor Barbara Besson Delannoy. Ms. King has received many awards for her collage seascapes and abstracts. Her work is in private and corporate collections throughout New England as well as New York, North Carolina and Virginia.
