Linda Jamieson - WOLFE WALKER

 ‘Although my paintings are described as landscapes, that is not the subject of the work. The subject is myself and my investigation into my experience of the world and what that world is.

 

I use landscape as a stage set with it’s props of plant life, water, weather and topical features as a portal into a space where I can explore technical problems within the limits of two dimensional space.

 

There is no fixed point of departure and I remain open to sudden changes of direction. I aim to create emotionally charged places that have fragments of memory embedded in them. These ‘memories’ may not be personal but borrowed.

 

I like torn postcards, film stills, scraps of fabric, partially recalled dreams.
 

The place I arrive at has no past or future, just one moment in time when I recognise a part of myself.’
