Linda Stark is an American artist known for her aligned concept and process as she investigates the physical properties of oil paint and extends the dialogue of this traditional medium. She drips, builds, and layers oil paint over an extended period of time, creating paintings with a high level of finish, which operate as objects with both fetish and aesthetic presence. In her paintings the temporal and material properties of oil paint are analogous to properties of the human body as flesh.
