Lynda Schlosberg's latest body of work, The Conscious Web, are paintings inspired by theories of quantum physics, which Schlosberg explores through vibrant color, and an organized chaos of line, pattern, and visual movement. Of her intense canvasses Schlosberg says, "My current work is focused on the idea of a unified field of energy to which we are all connected, a collective consciousness that we contribute to with everything we think and do, no matter how big or small." Schlosberg's paintings are not landscapes to be stepped into traditionally; instead they ask to be dissolved into as particles and waves of energy. Repeating patterns of dots suggest particulate matter. Interweaving layers of undulating lines and saturated colors swirl, expand and visually vibrate across the canvas. The labor-intensiveness of her work adds to the feeling of spontaneous combustion and pulsating movement while her bold presentations thoroughly envelop the viewer.
