Guest artist: Linda Lyke

My direction and voice as an artist is focused on meaning by analyzing the conditions of the natural world and the human interventions with both saving and destroying it. Using printmaking strategies and mixed media, I draw inspiration from my passion for nature through the articulation of ink and solvent to reveal my deep commitment to saving habitat and the diverse animals on the planet.

My recent exhibition at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center, Field Notes: When Taxonomy becomes Iconography, captures the spontaneous and immediate sense of discovery that stems from close observation of avian and megafauna in Amboseli National Park and the Maasai Mari in Kenya.
