Artist Profile

Linda Rahm

Medium: Mixed and acrylic

Description:  Loose interpretations of realism, abstractions and non objective paintings

My paintings are a loose interpretation of realism and sometimes an abstraction of the subject. The representational aspects provide a framework while the abstraction gives depth and intrigue to the rendering. I believe this complementary relationship enhances the piece. The details in a painting aren’t as important to me as is the composition. When composition and values, i.e., light and dark, are strong, the details take care of themselves, and the beauty of the forms “speak”.
