New Work Added To Live Salon Exhibition

February 24, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Courting Death by Linda Adair has been added to the 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition.

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

—John Donne, Death be not proud
"Not all love is beautiful or desirable, at times one can attract an unlikely admirer. In this painting, Courting Death, I wanted to combine careful detailed realism with abstract marks to give the feeling of stillness underlain with fluttering nervous energy. For this moment all is calm, frozen in time. Our hero might look tranquil and in control on the outside but inside she is a whirlwind of thoughts, plans and emotions. She has inadvertently caught the eye of a powerful, deadly character. What will she do now? Through this painting I show the complex, beautiful, and possibly deadly side of love."
This work is also available for sale. For inquiries please contact
