Linda J Ging, born in 1941 in Hutchinson, Kansas, is an American transcendentalist who has worked in quiet obscurity for nearly thirty years. Her paintings, rooted in the immense spaces and changing skies of rural Kansas, are not landscapes. They are not about things. They are dust, astral dust. This first publication of her work reproduces in color more than thirty of her mature pieces.
Her mature work pushes abstraction beyond Abstract Expressionism’s cult of personality, beyond the geometry of Rothko’s shimmering squares. Her selfless art, “beyond is and is not,” as the poet Rumi wrote, explores the gorgeous mysteries of nothingness, the rewards of uncertainty, the marvelous fullness of the Void.
