Linda Plaisted is an award-winning American multi-disciplinary artist whose exploratory practices include photography, collage, encaustic, and painting.
As a pioneer in contemporary photomontage, each piece of artwork she creates tells a story by pushing beyond the boundaries of the medium into mythology using traditions of appropriation, synthesis and reinterpretation. She employs her visionary arts to tell the untold stories of women; healing ancestral wounds. Layering pieces she has collected from her original photography and paintings, found images, family documents and collected ephemera, she creates digital mixed media pieces with translucent veils of narrative and dreamlike symbolism. Her work represents layers of time and memory bleeding through one another to create a thinly-veiled liminal space where our ancestors and ourselves can reunite, creating new mythologies for the future.
