Textures and colors are intertwined brilliantly on Linda Buller's abstract artworks, reflecting a range of ideas and feelings. Playing mainly with oil and acrylic, Linda explores a wide variety of media including sand, plaster, concrete and paper on canvas. She finds that abstract paintings which she does with mixed media gives her larger room to express her innermost feelings. Explains Linda: "Something has now come together for me, a meeting of spirit and mind. Before, I rarely made a painting I was happy with, now I have an intense feeling of satisfaction when I look at my work."
Linda Buller's work expresses her spirituality and concerns for her surroundings. Almost everything that she sees on earth is inspiring: mountains, animals, and people. Linda often travels to have a new experience before starting a series of artwork. While traveling, she becomes a sponge, absorbing things before bringing them out again on canvas. For Linda, a painting is a utensil, something that helps us think about what we want in our life and which road we want to travel.
Linda started painting at the age of 14 and studied fine arts at the Bendigo Institute of Technology in Melbourne for three years. Linda was also an active member of the Fitzroy (Melbourne) Arts Scene for ten years as a performer, poet and visual artist participating in both group and solo exhibitions. Having lived and worked in Bali for ten years, Linda's career has blossomed internationally, with work being sold to collections in Italy, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand and Indonesia. Her multicultural lifestyle permits transcendental creativity in her artistic processes, and sensitivity to the subjectivity to experience.
In her solo exhibition at Jenggala Art Gallery, Linda wants to reveal the abstract pieces which reflect diverse concerns on animals, environment and nature. To enjoy these artworks, viewers will discover their own concepts, ideas, and various possibilities. Paintings, Linda says, are music, they talk to your soul; "if something resonates then it is because your soul is seeing or hearing the painting. When your hair stands on end or when you get goose bumps…well, that's your soul enjoying."
"Transition" an exhibition daily at the Jenggala Art Gallery in Jimbaran, daily from December 15, 2006 through March 13, 2006.
