Linda Sue Price begins her neon work with no preconceived image, but rather a concept. Her subject matter is about the human condition. Meditation, driving and the act of creating where observation resonates can be what the work is about. Once a concept emerges the action of bending the neon into abstract forms becomes the theme. Process is important because while the work might look random, there is thoughtful structure underneath.

Elements of historic neon signs, abstract expressionism, pop art and graphic design influence Linda Sue Price’s work. Artists who inspire her are Alexander Calder, Frank Stella, Laddie John Dill and Judy Chicago.

Linda’s work also combines the reality of the medium (the bending of neon tubes) with the challenges of the imagery (the curving, abstract forms). The process that connects these relationships represents the mental process that she is interested in, a visual manifestation of a system of thought.

Michael Flechtner’s work reflects a fascination with the symbols of language, technology and how they influence popular culture. He describes animals, machinery, etc. and utilizes various forms of language. The various “components” inhabit his internal landscape. He brings forth and arranges this highly idiosyncratic material to create pictograms, ideograms and rebuses, surely the effects of his unconscious. Through the creation of these pieces he works through and processes personal issues and attitudes. Each piece is a complete record of that process. In spite of this focus on his “inner self”, this work is for everyone. To that end the figures are recognizable and the compositions are “pleasing to the eye.” And if the viewer wants more, they can apply there own meanings and interpretations which he feels is as relevant as his own.
