Born in Minneapolis in 1947, Linda Karshan has lived in London since 1969. Her drawings and prints derive from simple procedures of rhythmic repetition, creating grids, rows and stacks. Minimal in their means and appearance, they are charged with an intuitive energy.
Karshan studied at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs (1965-67); The Sorbonne, University of Paris (1968) and The Slade School of Fine Art, London (1968-69).
Her work has been exhibited widely including The Redfern Gallery, London; Galerie Werner Klein, Cologne, Galerie Biedermann, Munich; Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge; Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM), Valencia; Sir John Soane Museum, London; Galleria Prisma, Bolzan; Bistritzia National Art Museum, Rumania; Nationaltheater, Bukarest; Edward Tyler-Nahem, New York; British Museum, London; Montgomery-Glasoe Fine Art, Minneapolis; Allan Stone Gallery, New York.
