Linder Sterling

Linder (born 1954, Liverpool, UK) has been working with the principles of collage for over three decades: from her two-dimensional work on the late 1970s iconic Buzzcocks posters and record sleeves, to more recent collages presented in light-boxes.

Linder with her work

For her exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield, Linder employed collage as two-dimensional prints and three-dimensional light-box sculptures. Drawing on Linder’s research into Barbara Hepworth the new works combined images of ballerinas from the 1970s with natural forms; making reference to Hepworth’s love of dance, and her engagement with the landscape.

The exhibition culminated in a major new performance piece entitled The Ultimate Form that presented collage as a visual and sensory experience using choreography and music.
