Linda Christensen, 'Color + Figure', at the Bakersfield Museum


Color + Figure: Paintings by Linda Christensen

January 28, 2021 - August 28, 2021, Bakersfield Museum of Art, Bakersfield, California

Linda Christensen’s collection of paintings revels in the tenderness and reflection of human nature. Though not intimate in size, her work centers on the meditations of mind and body, set within the interplay of gestural brushstrokes and harmonious color palettes.

Christensen’s work portrays faceless women, creating both liveliness and anonymity. This way, any woman, and by extension any person, can see themselves as the pensive figures portrayed. This is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition.
