Lynda Schlosberg


 
 

 

Lynda Schlosberg is a Boston-based artist who creates intricate and complex paintings that are inspired by quantum theories and philosophies. In the construction of her work she utilizes a process of fragmentation and the language of abstract painting. Schlosberg aims to depict an imaginal realm where all natural and unnatural forces collapse into a vibrating energy that can materialize into one of an infinite number of potential realties.

Schlosberg has worked as a graphic designer and fine art photographer for more than thirty years and began her painting career in 2008. Her artwork has been published in Where BostonBoston HomeStudio Visit, BostonVoyager and  ArtBeat 
magazines and reviewed in The Boston GlobeArtscope and the Portland Press. Schlosberg’s paintings are included in several corporate collections including BioMed Realty, New England Bio Labs, and BioGen. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout New England including her recent 2018 solo exhibition Multiverse at the Fitchburg Art Museum. She also received the 2013 Frances N. Roddy Award from the Concord Art Association.

Schlosberg received her Master of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, and her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University College of Art. Lynda Schlosberg was born in Newton, Massachusetts and paints in her Waltham, Massachusetts studio.

The space between you and me, is it really empty? Consider all the unseen bits of data: radio, television, cell phones, wireless routers, email, instant messaging, the Internet. Our air is filled with waves of electrical currents, digital impulses, and magnetic forces. Also consider that everything we think and do as humans is enabled by electrical signals running through our bodies. How does our invisible energy field mix and flow with the energy field swirling around us? What might space look like if all that energy collapsed into one plane of reality? My paintings use sources from computer animation; a technological process of fragmentation; and the language of abstract painting to depict a non-verbal, non-physical environment that characterizes a relationship between form and formlessness. Objects emerge and dissipate. Layers of data collapse into one another constructing collaborative spaces of interlacing dimensions. Everything in the picture plane is in total flux. In these paintings line and geometry is woven together constructed of thousands of tiny brushstrokes of opaque, saturated colors. As individual marks assert themselves they are instantaneously absorbed back into the collective representing a never-ending cycle, where energy vibrates into form and form breaks down into indiscernible particles of energy, where the sum of all its parts creates an ineffable whole.
