original oil paintings
Nimbus will be featuring the abstract paintings of Linda Lamore for the month of September. Please join us September 4th, for Ashland’s First Friday artwalk from 5-8 p.m. to meet the artist and enjoy an evening out on the town with other art lovers.
There are many dimensions to art; it can inspire, anger, thrill, or calm the soul. Hopefully it communicates something, whether it is on an emotional level or on an intellectual level. With my paintings I hope to elicit a positive emotional response that transports you to another place. This group of paintings represents an assortment of my styles within the refracted series. Represented here are multi-media pieces, abstracted scenic pieces and nonobjective abstract pieces.
Born in Los Angeles California, Linda Lamore began painting at the age of eleven. Early influences were her mother, an artist, and her father, an architect, whose passion for the Bauhaus style and Modern Art inspired her love of abstraction. “Painting has always been something I just had to do, a need, a compulsion.” She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from San Diego State University in 1995, where she majored in painting and minored in sculpture. She went on to receive her teaching credential and taught art, 3-D design and ceramics for six years. Her longing to produce art fulltime, and a desire to slow down and feel connected to a community, led her to Ashland, OR.
