Linda’s work is a lot about melancholia. Her work consist out of associations
with with the past, sometimes even straightly luring you back to the feelings of an
almost unaffected child, whose observation is still in a direct line with their
feelings. By looking at her work, as a ‘affected’ viewer, you might feel that your
feelings while observing are coming from a lot more than just that straight line.
Her work make you aware of sometimes even scary distance between the past and how is
has brought you to where you are now. Exploring natures and surroundings significance,
she reccolects distant memories and combines them with momentarily emotions.
As one of the main inspirations is her hometown Tārgale parish in
Ventspils – exploration of peaks from the local culture, the community, interacting
with locals using different artistic approaches, this way expressing unexpected
longing after a place never longed after before.
