The animals speak, both real and imagined. These figures tell the artist's stories as she digs deep and finds personal truths. The world of animals evokes a different kind of emotional landscape with a verity of expression and natural behavior. The layered, multimedia paintings coalesce into intricate and surreal scenes, reflecting life's complexity of experience, memory, expectations and dreams.

The current mixed media paintings and installations are populated by animals- both real and imagined. In these narrative works, the animals often become surrogates for human beings and their emotional lives. Some of the animal figures, including those made from fabric and Play-Doh, speak directly to the child within and the vulnerable, delicate places of the viewer’s own past.

The highly textured pieces are made with painted and photographic images, fabric, wood, glass, and found objects. They coalesce into intricate and surreal scenes, reflecting life’s emotional complexity. By working intuitively, the artist layers materials, images, and dream-like scenarios.

Linda Mitchell has exhibited her paintings extensively with solo exhibitions in numerous museums and galleries nationwide. Her work is represented by Thomas Deans Fine Art in Atlanta, Linda Matney Fine Art in Williamsburg, VA and Dogwood Gallery in Tyrone, GA. Her work can be found in numerous museum, corporate and private collections."
