Linda Sirow is an East Hampton-based abstract artist, working predominantly with encaustic wax. Reflecting her love of color, process, and movement, her work allows her to wordlessly express innermost thoughts and infinite emotions.
Originally drawn to sculpture, she later found that as a working mother of three living in Manhattan, she had neither the time nor the space necessary for the practice. She turned to painting, and once she discovered encaustics, she felt an immediate affinity for its character, depth, and similarities to the physicalness of sculpture.
Ms. Sirow gets inspiration from nature, and favorite artists such as Eva Hesse, Helen Frankenthaler, and Willem de Kooning. She trained at the Boston Museum School and Pratt Institute. She taught art at the Dalton School in New York City for twenty-five years and is currently an adjunct faculty member at Hunter College.
Her encaustic/mixed media painting, “Connections III,” resides in the permanent collection of the Museum of Encaustic Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States at many galleries such as the Liman Gallery in Palm Beach, Florida, Kathryn Markel and 79th Professional Galleries in Manhattan, and Silas Marder and The White Room Gallery in the Hamptons.
