Linda Rae Coughlin

 

Rooted in feminism, Linda Rae Coughlin’s art explores the issues and events that challenge women’s lives.  In her fiber/mixed media pieces, you will usually find female, and/or a word, phrase, or symbol that expresses a feeling about a particular experience; symbolic of her desire for women to always have their own voices. Private diary pages of many anonymous females, these visual vignettes look at genre, strength, obscurity, and social philosophy. Linda Rae’s art pieces are upcycled, using cast off items and discarded clothing.
