According to MarinMOCA, “Memory and Perception” is an exhibit that reveals how artists interpret the world around and within them. All artists integrate their life experiences into their artwork, consciously or unconsciously, often incorporating what they see and sense in the present with their memories of the past.”Lynda gives a vivid and poignant statement of herpainting:“There is a great deal of loneliness waiting to erupt in me. The “LACMA; Inside Looking Out” is me. I find myself inside and always looking outside. As I reach out from the darkness of the inside and looking into the brightness of the sunlight outside, I realize I can only remain inside and merely look outside. I continue to see myself in the dark but I always aim for the light.
