Born in 1984, Linden spent her youth in the urban Sonoran desert of Phoenix, Arizona before moving to Southern California to obtain her BA in Studio Art. She’s since lived and worked out of New England, Europe, India, Australia, Samoa, New Zealand, and Japan.
This primary interest in place and self-archival attracted her to the collage medium. Using a combination of found fragments and personal elements, she composes floating abstract shapes sewn together with thread. Her work centers around themes of memory architecture, its process, and the layers of alterations which happen each time a recollection occurs.
Choosing a distinct colour palette together with the transparency of vellum, her pieces attempt to replicate the quiet hazy environment from which a memory is recalled. Blending autobiographical narratives with larger collective subjects such as childhood, longing, and home, Linden thinks of her collages as layered field recordings that represent multiple interpretations and perspectives of the same story.
Linden's work has been published and exhibited internationally. She currently lives in upstate New York.
