During her residency at La Maison de Simon, Linda will investigate the marks and imprints resulting from the interaction between human activity and nature.​

Through her work Linda Williams seeks to express the emotion she feels when in the presence of nature and the feelings that marked her body and memory when as a child growing up in Sweden. There is a kind of intimate personal truth, a quest that painting tries to convey using a language that is constantly reinvented.

More recently, Linda’s work has turned towards the marks left in nature by human activity and the new landscapes that take form after human intervention. After a series of paintings inspired by clear cut forest areas and the subsequent reclaiming by nature of those spaces, she is currently exploring the landscapes left behind after mining activity in her home region in Sweden.

“Exploring the perception and experience of the natural surroundings, I’m fascinated by nature’s constant movement and its different stages of becoming and unbecoming. This fleetingness and perpetual change make each experience of nature unique – and heighten its beauty.” Linda Williams. 

Linda Williams invited playwright Vanja Hamidi Isacson​ as a Guest Resident to join her during her residency.
