While drawing inspiration from the local, Linda Gall ultimately transcends it through a complex visual dialogue that has social, environmental, and human implications. Decomposing buildings, most recently of abandoned adobe and wood, loom behind genteel porcelain figurines that might have graced Victorian mantelpieces. In contrast to the beautifully aged wood and adobe falling back into the earth, the figurines seem impervious to time. They appear to be visitors from an earlier era moving through our own, simultaneously connected to and disconnected from what surrounds them.
