Larinda Meade focuses on the New England landscape with a focus on the textures and shapes of the Maine landscape. She uses her surroundings as a means to make meaning of my experiences by interpreting the light and sound found in crevices, branches, reflective water or atmospheric mist. She enters the natural world through walking and observation and seek to give shape and sense to the experience of being out in the natural world. Her process is one of sketching and taking snapshots as she walks and recording what appeals to her. From there, she uses intaglio and aquatint etching to imbue the images with scratchy grit and raw luminescence. She is always intrigued by the essential mutability of ocean, sky, fields and woods.
