Linwood is a master of mixed media, unifying disparate materials like acrylic, oil, pastel, pencil, and even found objects collaged on the canvas. While the artist, and the art, challenges each viewer to find meaning in the work, a sense of beauty born of chaos echoes through his work. Joy is an omnipresent theme. Bateau-as-vessel imagery, suggestive of life’s journey and a rich symbol of transcendence, is also a recurrent theme throughout his work. Color play is striking, as seemingly discordant hues harmonize under the his brush.
