Linda Stojak is noted for exploring the convergences between the corporeal and the ethereal in the context of the female form. Some of her figures hover like ghosts, receding into smoky, sensuous darkness, while others are grounded in thick outlines that link firmly with their backgrounds. Close observation of her surfaces of apparently monochromatic color reveals an incredible range of tonality and finely graded hue. These layered canvases of deeply textured palette-knife applied oil paint are often dark, pasty or wet-looking, recalling the consistency of wiped mud or paint boiled down into tar. These figures are solitary, alone, but not lonely. Stojak says, "My hope is for my work to help people accept the emotions in themselves."
