BACKGROUND: After running from the Trade Towers for an entire day on 9/11,
Linda Stein had to vacate her downtown apartment and studio.
For the next year, she stopped making sculpture, and created,
instead, a series of “Mood Portraits” of women of courage, who have
made a difference in the history of GENDER JUSTICE.
Currently, in between gender-bending sculpture,
Stein continues to make these portraits
as commissions or fund-raising opportunities.
Stein thinks of this portrait series as a feminist labor of love, a “sideline”
to her Knight series and upcoming traveling solo exhibition: The Fluidity of Gender.
With most of her portraits, the proceeds from sales go directly
to the fund-raising non-profit corporations.
Each portrait is made with watercolors and gouache paints
and then converted into a fine-art original print with archival inks
(think etching or lithograph) with a limited edition of 85 prints.
They are usually framed with archival 8-ply double matting.
