Layers of torn edges and severed forms distinguish Linda Cunningham’s large format mixed media paper constructions.
The tactile sensibility of her work comes from her interest in the qualities of materials, observed or found. She transforms found materials, a kind of “Urban Mining,” yet preserves their cast-off qualities. In the wall-constructions she fuses relief elements, such as exposed structural fragments or sand-cast bronze, shaped by the physical process of the pour. Conceptually clear, she casts the bronze forms from military surplus scrap.
