Linda L Brobeck is a visual artist living and working in Minnesota. Her work utilizes dramatic coloration, as well as occasional figurative elements, as a reflection of her own energy and emotion. The paintings-with their layers, texture, and color – symbolize life with both its drama and subtlety. “I am interested in internal dialogue – in emotion made visible. In some instances, I paint until the emotion emerges. Occasionally, images emerge from the abstract – somehow caught in the space between conscious and unconscious thought.”
Brobeck’s mixed media, some of which include self-images, explores identity and are studies in the nature of memory, transparency, and the meaning of how we are exposed to society. Her mixed media work, in particular, is imbued with social issues, and themes of rebirth and spirituality.
Linda’s works are an expression of her inner life, but she invites viewers to create their own narrative based on personal experience.
Linda is a curious person who explores a variety of mediums and especially loves to work in clay and to write. She is the owner of Crow River North, a studio located along the Crow River in Minnesota. The studio is open to visitors at designated times or by appointment. Linda’s work has been shown locally, nationally, and internationally. She holds a Master’s Degree in Visual Art/Studio Art from The University of Wisconsin.
Brobeck is an arts advocate – a Director and Chair of the Central Minnesota Arts Board (CMAB), and Grant Panelist at CMAB. Linda was appointed by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton to the Perpich Center for Arts Education, where she serves on the Executive Committee, and is Chair of the Human Resources Committee. Linda is a volunteer with mnArtists.org, a project of Walker Art Center, and a Team Leader for Arts Advocacy Day, at Minnesota Citizens for the Arts – MCA. She believes in volunteerism and participates on a local hospital committee and as needed elsewhere within her communities.
