Linda Skrolys

“Linda was born in Merredin in 1955 . She completed studies in Visual Arts and Art Education at Edith Cowan University.  Linda’s father had to leave Lithuania during the years of the Soviet expansion and met his wife-to-be in the turmoil of the German tragedy. Linda is representative of many first generation Australians whose parents escaped Europe after WW11 , finding themselves growing up in an environment without relatives and icons that linked their identity to a particular place and time.  Linda’s paintings are psychological explorations of the coming to terms with the narratives of parents isolated from their European heritage. She presents a universal issue of identity and home coming through an assemblage of family narratives.” Dr Geof Lummis
