AXOM GALLERY IS PLEASED TO PRESENT
Heart Doesn’t Know Rules
Friday, March 1, 2019
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
On view from March 1 thru April 23, 2019
Lin Price is an artist whose paintings can be described as loosely constructed semi-narratives that tap the subconscious, and open up a window to the complexities of the human condition against backdrops of abstracted painterly landscapes that hint towards the recognizable.
These works represent fleeting moments of contemplation that Price hopes all viewers can identify with; the experience of reconciling our worldly states of being with desires of the soul. They are not meant to be interpreted into reason or narrative, rather a poetic reference to the subconscious states of internal conflicts and irrational space – like dreams often do.
“Themes that arise in my paintings are the experiences of desire, regret, and joy. Through imagination, playful creation of abstracted spaces, and color composition, I attempt to show an inner world that is mysterious and noble…as dreams and life often are.” -Lin Price-
Price’s concerns are just as much about the intimate details of our inner psychological worlds as they are about the formal elements of painting. The loosely realistic style utilizes color, shape, line, texture, and form which reference elements from color field painters to abstract expressionists all while harkening back to the narrative themes of the Romanticist. These elements guide us as we navigate through the sub-realities and psychological landscapes that straddle the lucid divide between the dream world and real life. The outcome is a sense of the surreal in a playful, witty, unexpected and undefined aesthetic.

“Spanning the past few years, this work represents a progression of sustained exploration. I rely on process rather than intent. Venture first; meaning may follow. I believe there is value in an inner recursive approach to creation. How do I know what I mean until I reflect on what I’ve created? 2015 to 2018 has been a time of shifts in both my personal world and the outer world as I have experienced it. There is a story here. It chronicles the journey of creating and reflects my response to the currents of time, the changing political landscape, daily life, and the solace of nature.”
