“Linda” by Gina Keatley

“Linda” is a compelling diptych from Gina Keatley’s “Atmospheric Fauna” series, named after a prominent UFO/UAP contributor who has extensively informed the world about cattle mutilations. This set of two 48 by 36-inch paintings combines acrylic paint with real animal hair, creating a visceral connection to its subject matter.

The left canvas features a predominantly neutral backdrop, disrupted by a bold, sweeping black stroke, symbolizing a beam taking a cow, evoking a sense of movement and urgency. The subtle textures and hints of color suggest an underlying narrative, inviting viewers to delve deeper into the mysteries it portrays.

The right canvas contrasts with darker tones and intricate textures, where the use of real animal hair adds a tangible, almost haunting quality to the piece. This canvas conveys a sense of depth and complexity, with the hair scattered across the surface, emphasizing the eerie and often unsettling nature of UFO phenomena.

Together, these two paintings form a dynamic dialogue, capturing the essence of Linda’s contributions to the field and the broader themes of Keatley’s series. The interplay of light and dark, smooth and textured, creates a compelling visual narrative that resonates with the viewer, encouraging reflection on the unknown and the unexplained.
