“When I first met Linda, we were all young and energetic and looking to the previous generations for ideas and inspiration. None of the work we were producing was much beyond what we saw in magazines and museums. I remember looking at Linda’s work and realizing this. But even through her ideas were extensions of advanced work of the time, and hers seemed to have a “light from within”. It remains a mystery how this is achieved, but it is what separates mere painting from art. Ever since then, I look for this quality in whatever work I am viewing. You can see it when it is there and you miss it when it is not. Linda’s work continues to achieve this intensity of expression. It is a privilege to show with her at any opportunity.”
-Jim Malone, showing with Linda Blackburn
