“Sidney’s Door (diptych)” by Linda Touby, 2014. Oil and wax on canvas. 11 x 14 inches each. Touby’s series of white monochrome paintings are a conceptual reference to the artist’s longtime relationship with sculptor, scholar, and studio neighbor Sidney Geist. Passing by Geist’s studio door daily, Touby often wondered what was happening on the other side. While saturated, intense color has been a central element in her paintings of the past, the white on white work belies remarkably rich and fresh surfaces of deep space and intriguing visual associations. A native of Florida, Touby moved to New York as a teenager where she began her studies at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She continued training at the Art Student's League and later the National Academy of Art. Touby's works have been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries internationally including the Museum Fur Konkrete Kunst Ingolstadt (1999), Germany. Her paintings are also housed in several permanent collections including the U.S. State department, Washington D.C.
