Linda Weir (Ongoing)
Linda is a St.Ives based painter whose expressionistic, ‘naive’ paintings depict colour, pattern, form, movement and texture, all tangled up with memory. Layering oil paint, Linda’s distinctive style develops from her rush to capture the moving changes – ‘to capture the boats before they leave, the sun before it sinks beyond Carnstabba hill and the fisherman to go out or come in’.
Born in Manchester, Linda studied at manchester Metropolitan University before going on to receive an MA in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. She moved to Cornwall in 2005 where she produces impasto oils, all ‘en plain air’. Linda has exhibited most recently and notably at the Royal Academy’s Summer Show.
