Artist Focus

Artist Focus: Linda Harris Reynolds

Through lighting and rich layering of color, Linda Harris Reynolds strives to weave stories where her “subjects can live and breathe.” Endlessly fascinated by people and the human form, her goal is to capture that which cannot be put into words about the human experience. “The universal nature of the human form seems to encompass everything I have to say,” she shares. “The detail conveys the feelings I want to express and the personal story it inevitably reveals.”

Her recent work places diverse individuals in specific environments to suggest more universal themes. Some of the issues she explores include the impact of Covid-19, addiction and teens struggling with eating disorders and self-harming behavior, and feminist themes of strength and perseverance.

2020 is part of her recent Quarantined series and explores the pent-up emotion the pandemic caused for so many. “2020 highlights the night and the strange behavior it brings out…drinking and dreams,” says Reynolds. “It serves to reveal our collective frustrations and vulnerabilities as a society.” —
