The work presents two lines from the poem, "The Sleepers," by Walt Whitman. I am inspired by the idea of humans connecting through and across their individual dreams. It offers another experience to unite individuals.
Artist BioLinda Ekstrom completed her Masters of Fine Art degree at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1996. She taught printmaking and book arts courses in the Department of Art and in the College of Creative Studies at UCSB from 1998 until her retirement in 2022.
Her art practice is anchored in the book as a cultural and symbolic object, and as a container of history, narrative, and memory. She is inspired by the intersections between art and the sacred, and the ritual dimension present in art practice. Her artists’ books and altered book sculptures have been exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions including, Frumkin Gallery, Santa Monica; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven CT; ArtSpace, New Haven, CT; Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI; Benton Museum, Pomona College, Pomona CA; Center for the Book, San Francisco, CA; Center for the Book, New York, NY; LIMN Gallery and Quotidian Gallery in San Francisco, CA; Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Ridgefield Connecticut and both Concord Art and Concord Library in Concord MA.
