WakeMed Raleigh, New Bern Campus
Paintings by Linda Dallas
through October 26, 2017
Artist Statement: Whether I'm noting the feathery grace of a tomato leaf or losing myself in the intricacies of a ginger root - pattern recognition gives me a thrill. In my recent works, I combined my love of pattern, the luminosity of watercolor, and the lushness of gouache to create images that celebrate food. I draw my inspiration from the beauty of ordinary objects. The pattern of a linen napkin; green tomatoes basking in the summer sun; sweet scent of ripe apples in an autumn orchard are all ingredients for my visual stew. I create these still life paintings to sustain my wonder of the beautiful foods that grace my table every day. To learn more about my artwork, visit my web site at www.appetite4art.com
