In the bold and vibrant creations of Linda Le Kinff, elements of her beloved masters permeate her highly original visions, embuing them with a force greater than the sum of their parts. Yet, when a body of her work is gathered for an exhibition, there is no mistaking that such a collection is a coherent outpouring of one very focused and original mind, drawing on a diverse treasure of artistic influences and personal experiences.
Born in Paris in 1949, from French parents on one side and Brazilian on the other (to which she attributes her exotic imagination), Le Kinff was trained in the classics, studying ancient techniques for twelve years in Italy where she became quite accomplished at painting, drawing, the graphic arts and the secrets of the Old Masters: tempera, egg painting on wood, the use of gold leaf as taught in Florence and Livomo. After her formal education, she surrounded herself with artists, painters and sculptors and the passion generated by this group changed, she maintains, the direction of her destiny, though she somehow always knew she would end up an artist. "That is to say that I have never had another career, except for a short attraction for journalism and writing for architectural magazines."
Drawing from her travels, dreams, reading and imagination, Le Kinff has taken her place among contemporary artists whose work frees us from the mundane reality of everyday life, not with elaborate fantasy but with a sure-handed rendering of beauty and elegance in line with her personal view on painting, which is "Everything is teaching a lesson of modesty." Never condescending, always uplifting, Linda LeKinff, with her new exposure to American audiences via Chedworth Publishing, is certain to become a. force majeure not only in the marketplace, but in the diaspora of this multi-tiered beast known as the Art World.
