Path to Ambrosia – Encaustic-Fiber-Oil on braced Birch panel – 48 X 60 X 2.5″ by L.Bigness


My path to encaustic art has taken many detours by reaching into the depths of being to create relevant and profound works of art with hidden meaning that could be experienced by the viewer.  The latest work, a large scale mixed media encaustic, was such a journey.  In accomplishing this work I was able to tap into all of my inner resources and experience the medium with an approach that allowed a spiritual path to emerge within the work.  This body of work is becoming my vessel of experiences with exploration and discoveries through emergent forms and their rhythms.  As I continue on this course of discovery, a surprising element has taken shape, with the process becoming my mentor.  The mentor, my inner being, has become the process guiding my work into uncharted journeys of the soul and its’ art.

Linda Bigness is an internationally exhibited artist who maintains a gallery/studio in Syracuse, New York. Her work has been exhibited in several prestigious solo and group shows that have involved notable jurors such as art critic Clement Greenberg, Ivan Karp, director of OK Harris Gallery in NYC, and Tom Piche, director of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition, Bigness’ large scale paintings are often selected and commissioned for corporate and residential clients, including the Turning Stone Resort, Merrill Lynch Corporation, Haylor, Freyer and Coon, and Bausch and Lomb. She continues to exhibit professionally at several venues with artwork featured frequently at the Nan Miller Gallery in Rochester, NY. Presently she is working on her latest book and exhibition about abstract art and the contemporary processes used by working artists today. Part of the research for this book is taken from the workshops she teaches and her oil painting and mixed media collage experience. For over 30 years Bigness has used her expertise to share with others the unique beauty and processes of her chosen medium through writing, teaching and professional exhibits. Her first book “Paint It, Tear It, Create It” offered the reader insight into visual abstract thinking through the process of collage into painting. She continues to explore the abstract through surface manipulation using encaustics and oil and is currently working on a new series, the “Journey Stones Revisited,” a reflection upon her extensive travels throughout the United States and Europe.
