 Artist Spotlight 4: Linda Cassidy
All the artists who appear in the 2020 Spotlight were scheduled for gallery exhibitions  this year. Instead, we are introducing them and their work to you individually, online (and for sale), over the next few months.  AND, for those of you who find yourself on Warren Street, Hudson NY, we are presenting the Spotlight Artist’s work on a LARGE banner in front of our gallery at 114. Thinking positively towards the future, we have invited these artists to exhibit old and new work IN the gallery next year, 2021.
For more info and purchase of prints and books, contact Karen at Gallery.

Linda Cassidy

The Sushumna Series

Through July 26, 2020

Artist Statement: (see images and bio below)

This ongoing body of work is an invitation.

The Sushumna is said by yogis to be the central channel through which prana (life-force) flows. Ineffable and difficult to perceive, the Sushumna can only be approached tenderly and with infinite curiosity. It retreats in the face of aggression.

Like the Sushumna, these works are as much there as not there. Arising directly from my long-standing yogic practice, they speak to me of breath and breathing.

Printed on glass, they float from the wall and probe the territories between color and light, form and formlessness, being and non-being.

The Sushumna pieces invite the viewer to enter a state of concentrated quietude and dwell for a moment in that magically lit zone, free from ideas of form, edges, assertions or sides; free from the strictures of thought itself.
