Naomi Schlinke: Sea of Changes

Movement, stillness, and breath form the touchstone for all of my work. Rooted in the practices of lyrical abstraction, I paint in loosely knit series bound by shared instructions and concepts.

Chaos and order work synergistically within my paintings. Limitations on predictability both feed and disrupt my intentions and imagination. That is part of their beauty. Uncertainty and profusion vie with legibility and singularity.

Something resembling sorcery seems to enable the work.
