This biography from the Archives of AskART:
LINDA BACON: ARTISTIC STATEMENT

The purpose of my art is to educate, stimulate, and entertain both myself and the viewers of my work. I paint realistic still lifes, using objects that I either own or borrow. I select objects that trigger a strong emotional or intellectual response in me: objects with color, shape, texture, design, and content that deserve hours of studying and painting. I create works that invite the viewer to reflect more deeply about familiar, easily recognizable objects, works that feature compositional complexity, fine detail, rich color, and my own expanding technical ability. A painting may deliver an overall philosophical message or emotion, yet on another level it might also investigate the relationship between certain colors, and in some corner there might be an exploration of abstraction within reality, perhaps through distorted reflections in the highly polished fender of a silvery toy car.

Recently I created a series of paintings of beat-up old toys. I spent months with many wonderful borrowed toys that I would love to own, yet by thoroughly examining and painting them, I now in a very real sense do own them, and have given them and all that they evoke to everyone who views those paintings.

Currently I am exploring new but similar subject matter: some is biographical, such as music memorabilia from the fifties and my uncle"s old fishing lures, and some is just nostalgic, such as old unexploded fireworks and stage magic paraphernalia.
