Wilderness Mind: Dissolving Duality


MaryLinda Moss earned a B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute in Chicago, where she began her fine art practice with bronze, fiber and multi-media work. The use of materials drawn from the natural world is essential to her sculptural explorations and relates the body and its processes to our intrinsic connection with the earth. She has also melded the use of her body into performative work, drawing on her many years of experience as an actor. Other studies include scholarship summers at Blackhawk Mountain School of Art in Colorado and an artist residency at Kansas City Art Institute. Her membership in the Los Angeles Art Association and involvement in the Eco-art Collective sponsored by the Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art have also influenced her practice.

Moss has shown her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions as well as creating sculptural and performative installations in many traditional and alternative spaces over the past 20 years. In 2012, she participated in the Wilderness Mind: Dissolving Duality exhibition at Angels Gate Cultural Center and was also part of Breaking in Two, an exhibition at Arena 1 Gallery linked to a documentary film that includes notable mother/artists in Southern California.
