I make paintings of powerful women, the sea, mysterious encounters, and uncommon places. These works occupy a mythic place in our consciousness,

and question what we know about the world.


Most of the settings of my paintings are imaginary places of reflection and contemplation. I chronicle all my travels in photographs. I combine landscapes, seascapes, people, architecture, creatures, and all sorts of odd details that have never existed together in reality. I love painting patterns, and skies on the cusp of change. Especially in my larger work, my viewpoint is often just outside the picture plane – one more step and you feel as if you can enter the narrative of the painting.

Birds, especially seabirds, have long been choreographed into my work, sometimes as companions, other times as avatars of change, growth, or escape. The conjunction of women and birds placed in enigmatic landscapes evokes an especially vivid dream.

"My favorite work in the exhibition was Linda Post’s “The Willing Suspension of Disbelief”, a large 72” x 53” oil on linen canvas painting truly enhanced by its huge size that fully allows one to see features that wouldn’t have been apparent looking at a digital image. Not only do you feel the intense presence of two women leaning against an aging fence - one holding a seagull while a second gull, it’s open beak seemingly smiling as its red eye looks out at the viewer - but four tents, the event they’ve been raised for unapparent.


Post said that the "surreal, shape-shifting tents" are one of the dreamlike places that occur often in her work... In the back of the painting a couple sits around a campfire, their attention alternating between each other and the rising moon. "When I began this painting, it was a sunset. By the end it was a moonrise," says Post. "Things change." The Danforth's annual juried show will always leave me with several artists whose work I will be following for years to come."

On February 22, the Intuitive Machines’ Odysseus spacecraft successfully landed on the moon’s southern hemisphere.

On board the Odysseus is the Lunar Codex, a time capsule that contains the work of contemporary artists, writers, and musicians.

My work is among them.
