Because Linda Ruth Dickinson believes that work can make spiritual beliefs manifest, her work focuses on the expression of those possibilities, connecting the viewer to that which may sometimes be beyond or outside usual experience or ordinary existence. Dickinson has been an Artist Member of Artspace in Raleigh for seventeen years. Recent shows include those sponsored by Artspace in Raleigh, North Park College in Chicago, Illinois, Meredith College, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Springfield Art Museum, in Springfield, Missouri, the Graham Center Museum in Wheaton, Illinois, the Bade Museum in Berkeley, California, the Knoxville Museum of Art in Knoxville, Tennessee, the David Adler Cultural Center in Libertyville, Illinois, Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Dickinson's work was the subject of Chicago's Sacred Treasures, a 1996 PBS documentary on sacred art. Dickinson's paintings can be seen in numerous private and public collections throughout the United States. She has been the recipient of several regional and national wards, including a 1998 Sotheby's Award for Outstanding Work.


"My consideration of the various forms of the Sacred continues as I search for the expression of 'the Invisible' in a synthesis of Eastern and Western thought. Born and raised in the East to Western parents, the traditions and values of both hemispheres inform me. Just recently, after fifteen years, I've felt that the aesthetic pursuit and struggle is a futile endeavor since beauty cannot be willed but must be granted. Many of my paintings display a desire to visualize horizonscapes of reductive expanse. Flung wide strokes are held subtly within an ovoid or circular framework. Value, hue and structure remain important formal components but the overriding concern is the search for the expression of a vision reminiscent of familiar terrestrial perspective, and yet evocative of the inner eye. The work refers to that unseen world of other principles and existences. My work acknowledges greater mysteries and wonders to be experienced, and suggests an inner tranquility that observes and embraces the declaration and dialogue between Heaven and Earth." —Linda Ruth Dickinson
