Linda Berman is a New York artist with her BFA and MS in Art from Texas A&M Kingsville, who has been working professionally as an artist for 20 years.
These are prints of the mixed media piece I sold in the 2017 NASTY WOMEN Memphis exhibit.
All ephemera items in this piece were old, some from the 1800’s, some from 1950’s-60’s. The token over one of the girl’s bodies says for amusement only. All the text came from old law books from 1917 and the photos are from 1968, mostly from a photo of a trip to D.C. that I got from a hoarder’s house down the street. Notice the girls are all cut up. The token over the girl’s body on the lower right side says “for amusement only”. The religious image and scientific image are placed next to each other on purpose. I used a light gold glaze over the entire thing, it’s all tainted with “gold”. The flags were from 4th of July, maybe 18 years ago. They are upside down because the nation is in distress. Flying a flag upside down is a sign of distress/call for help. The green background was old Japanese paper that had been laying around my studio for over 23 years, that I was saving for just the right project.
