Living Room Volume 1 - Linda Gibbs, 5 August 2020

Living Room is an ongoing series of short films by visual artist Nina Sanadze.

Each film presents a portrait of a Melbourne artist captured in their home studio and sometimes at their job too.

Recorded on a smartphone in between Covid lockdowns, the films blend domestic and political, private and public creating personal, insightful biographies of artists and living conditions of our time. 

Linda Gibbs is a landscape painter who has spent the past decade surveying Wilson’s Promontory, the most southern tip of the Australian mainland. Her practice begins in the field, franticly recording wild weather, subtle colour shifts, and the ever-changing atmospheres of Bass Strait.

The field studies reveal vast panoramas of complex abstraction and inform large-scale, pared-back oil paintings produced in her country studio. 

Following studies at the National Art School, Linda worked in Melbourne as a gallery director, curator, major festival events producer, and adult art tutor. Her main focus is always her own studio practice. She is included in private and public collections and has been selected for many prestigious art prizes.
