Linda Post: Paintings

Linda Post’s oil paintings chronicle the psychology of the cusp of adolescence. The landscape is easily recognizable as southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands, where the artist spent much of her own childhood and adolescence. Coming back to oils over the last five years, after years of working in soft pastels, Post has immersed herself in the seductive brushwork of oil-laden paint. Even when applying oil paints, she often puts the paintbrush aside – leaving fingerprints, scratches and the mark of her hands in the pools of color on the canvas.
