About this Artist

Linda LaFontsee

"I am in love with the eloquence of sparseness and everything to do with the act of painting--the smell, the lushness of oil paint, color."

Using a variety of media including encaustic, oil, and gouache, Linda LaFontsee conveys the dance of life with an organic freedom independent of representation. Through layering, line and color, her paintings build upon the structure of pattern. Always the artist works with the push and pull of what to keep and what to paint over or scrape away. She is attracted to layers of peeling paint, the configuration of bricks, and natural outgrowths such as the rings of trees or the scattered tones of pebbles.

LaFontsee chooses to work with natural materials, responding to the fleshy quality of encaustic, its smell, color, texture, and the challenge and pleasure of working with it. With pattern as a foundation, she tones, varnishes, burns, molds, melts, and scratches into the surface of her paintings until a fluid repetition emerges.

Like life under a microscope, LaFontsee's paintings appear alive, in flux, primordial and eternal. There is a musical essence to the way in which her paintings move, undulating in subtle organic motion. Viewers are enticed to slow down and to take pleasure in their meditative quality of seductive calm.
