Linda Sue Price, Connections at TAG Gallery Opening June 12th






(Los Angeles, California) – TAG Gallery is pleased to feature two bodies of mixed media works by L.A. artist Linda Sue Price. The artist’s works capitalize on an economy of material in reflecting issues surrounding our current socio-political climate. Specifically, Price explores themes of dividedness, interconnectedness, and spiritualism, combining photographic portraiture, chain, textiles representing each of the seven continents, and prominently, the yin-yang symbol made from neon-lit tubing.

In Price’s series Connections, the works’ underlying grid of crowdsourced portraits represents California’s diverse demographics and include those in her Los Angeles community and California residents at large. The artist’s highlighting of differences in race, gender, age, and orientation grounds her works in the traditions of social realism in their emphasis on the ‘average’ Californian. In her series Continents, the works alternately combine indigenous textiles worldwide. Both of the artist’s bodies of work relate humanity’s concerns from local, global, and cosmic vantages.

Price’s works trace current tensions facing humanity and are expressed between optimistic images of family, community, or symbols of culture, and affixed chain link that surrounds each piece. Through the artist’s juxtaposing of photographs and chain links, Price examines borders as objects of both protection and confinement and makes ambiguous the relationships between fragility and strength. Price’s use of the yin-yang symbols are ever-present reminders of the light and dark forces inherent in the laws of nature and invites contemplation about humanity’s role in the small and biggest pictures.

Linda Sue Price lives and works in Los Angeles County, California. Price is known for injecting her personal reflections to stimulate emotion and to manipulate how neon is perceived as a medium. She began studying neon as a medium under Michael Flechtner at the Museum of Neon Art in 2004. There she developed her unique style of bending. Elements of historic neon signs, abstract expressionism, pop art, social realism and graphic design influence Linda Sue Price’s work.

Recent exhibitions include the Museum of Neon Art, Artshare LA, San Joaquin Delta College and Art Exchange in Southern California as well as The Midway Gallery in San Francisco. She has had solo shows at TAG Gallery in Los Angeles. Price shows yearly in a two-person exhibit at the Fine Arts Building in Downtown Los Angeles with Michael Flechtner. Price will be showing at Eastern Projects in Chinatown in July, the Brand Library in Glendale and LA Artcore in 2020. She serves as an advisory board member for the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale, California.

Linda Sue Price has been written about in Los Angeles Magazine, Art and Cake, Diversions LA, We Choose Art, Fabrik Media, Artscene, Santa Monica Mirror, the Daily Times and the Long Beach Post.

Exhibit runs from June 12TH-July 7TH, 2018

Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
