Description

Linda Lee Boyd nearly does away with outline in this large woodcut, relying solely on the language of texture to communicate the planes and movement in this portrait of two stucco artisans at work. The vertical lines of the fence and the horizontal lines of the “scratch” layer of stucco are offset by the drapes and creases of their clothes and the angled lines of their tools.

Linda Lee Boyd, painter, printmaker and teacher, was born on 11 November 1949 in Petaluma, California. She received her B.A. degree in religious studies from the University of California at Berkeley and her M.F.A. degree with high distinction in printmaking from the California College of the Arts, Oakland. Boyd also studied printmaking at San Francisco State University with Roy Ragle.

Boyd is a board member of the Emeryville Celebration of the Arts, which produces the annual juried Emeryville Art Exhibition, and was on the board of the California Society of Printmakers for many years. She has taught relief printmaking at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and has her own graphic design business.

She has exhibited her prints throughout the San Francisco Bay Area as well as numerous printmaking exhibitions including the Fourth Annual Hand Pulled Prints: The Current Practice in Printmaking, International Print Center New York, 2018, and Stand Out Prints 2018 International Juried Exhibition, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
