ARTIST LINDA MATHISON
It's been a while since the success of the Christmas Go reborn. One thing I loved most about goreborn was was the chance to work with talented local artists such as Charlie Anderson, Ross Christie, Matthew Swan, Elph, to name but a few. One work that especially grabbed my attention at the pop up shop was the work of Linda Mathison. It reminds me of the work of Dan Hiller who's work can be seen at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, East London every Sunday. His use of digital collage, illustration to abstract the human form into mythical type creatures is genius. Like that of Darwin these artists cross breed human forms with animals to create some truely great artworks. Linda's other subjects are classical cherubs and women, some colleages have been hand crafted on to glass frames, an effect that I really like especially like me if you a love for wallpaper, as this can be used as an interest backdrop.
I am really pleased to have Linda's work now in Godiva window. There have been some instant sales on this work probably due to the bargain prices Linda is selling her work at. Framed pictures are around £50-£60, so everyone can own a piece of art today!
