Linda Casbon
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work translates forms into a language of metaphoric associations. It hints at meanings without using literal descriptions. Objects are the visual sounds of this language. When placed together these words form a sentence, a poem, and a kind of narrative with its own internal logic. The pieces look like . . . feel like . . . sound like . . . but cannot be consciously identified or named. With this work I am striving for a sense of unnameable familiarity.
Some of the work consists of single objects. I view these pieces as words or emblems. More often the work is a group of objects, or a composition. Ceramic forms are used as a sculptural canvas to draw on, creating interplay between painted shapes and actual shapes. The physical scale and formal qualities of the work reference the body.
Current series include: "Pillows" which have a volume reminiscent of lungs and breathing, "Tunnels" and "Blankets" which focus on differences between inside and outside and the idea of transformational space, and "Cages" which utilize structural elements to create form and explore three-dimensional mapping and order versus randomness. The surfaces and drawings on the forms are inspired by an array of sources including maps and aerial photographs.
