Linda Ruth Dickinson
Linda Ruth Dickinson is a self-taught artist born and raised on the island of Taiwan to Midwestern American parents. Drawing on this transcultural heritage she seeks to bridge seemingly disparate worldviews by expressing the intangible
through universal iconography in a synthesis of Eastern and Western thoughts, traditions and values. Translating her vision primarily through paint on canvas or panel, Dickinson’s explorations result in abstracted imagery that is both familiar and otherworldly. And because she believes that work can make spiritual beliefs manifest, she attempts a charting of hope within various forms of the Sacred; her art focusing on the expression of those possibilities, which can connect the viewer to that which may extend beyond usual experience and ordinary existence.
Linda Ruth Dickinson has exhibited in museums, art centers and galleries throughout the United States and can be seen in numerous private and public collections. She has fulfilled many requests to create original site-specific paintings for corporations, art centers and private art collections. Her work has been published, in print and online, and was a subject of a PBS Television Documentary.
