'Khanya', 6-28 Sept 2014

A sculpture and painting exhibition of work influenced by Africa, by Linda Lipinski, is being held at Mardleybury Gallery in Datchworth this September.

My love of Africa began over 30 years ago.  The essence of Africa and the African women, the townships, the beautiful colours and the light.

I have done a series bright bold acrylic and mixed media paintings to try and capture the spirit of Africa.  My paintings also echo some of the shapes in my sculptures.  I have sculpted for over 37 years and more recently painting.  I paint mostly with credit card which adds a sculptural feel to my work.  LINDA LIPINSKI
