"Part paint, part poetry"
Linda Zacks is a contemporary artist, award-winning art director, and graduate of Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Her powerful visual storytelling style—part paint, part poetry—hopscotches between every medium, blurring distinctions between commercial projects and fine art along the way. Growing up outside of (and throughout) the U.S. shaped her mixed-media approach to creating dynamic works, and nothing in her practice—old wood, torn paper, rusty metal, ink, duct tape, Polaroids, digital conversations, video—goes unused.

More About This Creator

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"The piece comes to life after time. It’s hard to be patient. The important thing is to start and enjoy the process as it snakes and changes and evolves. One day you love it, one day you hate it. But keep moving and be as fearless as possible. I can work on a large piece for a month - coming in and out of the studio to add this and that. Slowly the concept takes shape. My works are not precious. I feel like I can always add something or paint over something or glue on something."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"A visceral connection that stirs something in their gut. A lot of my works are large so they will be the focal point of a room or office. See it, feel it."
