Galia Linn is a sculptor and site-specific installation artist living and working in Los Angeles. Linn constructs relationships between subject, object and their environments by creating elemental tensions; a delicate balance between the mediums’ limits and Linn’s exploration with life’s imperfections. Influenced by an early childhood in Israel, a land full of ancient and contemporary relics of past and present civilizations, Linn’s work absorbs both her physical body through the manipulation of the material and the emotional and historical resonance of the artists’ life. What appears fragile, in the end is rock strong, the cracks become symbolic; a window into the internal makeup of the vessels, a metaphor for strength and beauty; a testament of surrender.
Galia Linn has shown nationally and internationally, and is part of numerous private collections in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Paris, Brussels and Tel Aviv. Selected solo and group exhibitions include: Inside at The Athenaeum, La Jolla, CA; Art Beyond Conflict, a year-long installation in Bellingham, WA; Experience 19: Touch, El Segundo Museum of Art, El Segundo, CA; Uncommon Terrain, Shulamit Nazarian Gallery, Venice, CA; Clay, Lefebvre et Fils, Paris, France; The Fourth World at the Institute of Art and Olfaction; Vessels at LA><Art; and SuperpowerShadowWoman at Five Car Garage, Los Angeles, CA.
Currently on view: Evidence of Care, May 25th - July 20th, 2019, at Track 16 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
