Bodies of Work-
Linda Tedeschi
Socially Distorted

My primary inspiration has always been focused on the human form.  This was initiated by a family trip to Italy during my childhood.  Being surrounded by the works of the Renaissance masters has molded and shaped my work.  I have a BFA in printmaking, with minors in art history and graphic design from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, 1991. I continue to print  and exhibition as a member of Experimental Etching Studio, Boston. These bodies of work have evolved into what I call Socially Distorted.  The format and fantasy in which people co-exist into this society.  Commenting on their efforts to be accepted and admired. 

  I was born with a pencil in my hand. I could always render.  So I will often get lost in my own head and find a face I like (whether I know it or not) and  just do it.  Some of my greatest drawings come out automatically and quickly.  Once again, my subjects are almost always figurative, human or animal.
