On Thursday, October 24th, we visited the studio of Linda Megathlin, 30 Cutler Street, Studio #218B, Warren
As a photographer and mixed media artist interested in themes of transformation, my work gravitates toward finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, the universal in the commonplace. Creating photographs and mixed media compilations from objects and natural elements we see every day, my focus is on the layers of meaning beyond the surface, surprise couplings and unconscious revelations.
Though I began my art career as a traditional black-and-white news and event photographer, currently I primarily work with abstract digital photography transfers and mixed media collage on non-traditional substrates such as wood, metal and stone papers. Recent subjects have included the concept of literal and figurative possessions, still life arrangements, winter trees, explorations of plant life and the ethereal nature of water.
