Linda Wooten-Green's work consists of painted patterns of color and light shapes that
move in rhythmic interconnected forms. A wilderness area or wooded grove isolated
from crowds of people and traffic lends itself to an intensity of feeling and kinship with and within the natural world.
These feelings and experiences inspire and sustain her art and suggest an understanding of the natural world as sacred space.
Many of the portraits in this series of paintings labeled INTERFACE/INCARNATION were developed from drawings Linda had done
of her students as demonstrations. Drawing these young people became a process in growing to know them as individuals,
interesting and unique young people whose lives touched Linda's. Some of the other original drawings were people
who were guests in homeless shelters and who allowed Linda brief glimpses into their lives as she drew their portraits.
