A sense of magical realism pervades Linda Landers’ work, where past memories meet the present, and landscapes and figures take on an aura of wonder and mysticism.

About

Linda draws inspiration for her paintings, etchings and wood engravings from nature and people around her, as well as from NASA space missions which Landers heard about as a child, when she met Buzz Aldrin.

Landers sites Etruscan art and frescos as a strong stylistic influence.  These sculptures and paintings are often peopled by smiling figures, and Landers’ own work is imbued with this sense of optimism; it celebrates the natural world and the joy of life and of the imagination.

There is a sculptural aspect to her work.  In the early paintings Landers builds up layers of paint to create texture as if a painted stucco.  In more recent work this building and layering is achieved rather through colour than a textured surface.  In wood engraving, the unprinted areas are cut and carved out in fine detail and the relief surface of the work is printed.

Landers was born in Hertfordshire but now lives and works in London.  She completed a Foundation course at Watford School of Art under Michael Werner and Peter Schmidt and went on to study Fine Art at Central St Martins under Cecil Collins.  She holds an MA in Art from the University of Kingston.  Landers won a printmaking prize at the Mall Galleries where she also taught.  She is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and is a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
