Canadian art is hot!
When Lynda Pogue was showing in New York, she saw the play “Red”. Alfred Molina starred as the intrepid artist Rothko who was fascinated by the colour red because of the way that it evoked emotional associations. This influenced her deeply. As soon as she got home, Lynda went directly to her studio and began layering paint like she had never done before. Lynda’s show will feature several paintings that reveal her passion for colour… including red.
Crimson Stories, Acrylic, 48”x 48”. Contact Lynda for price
