Inquire

Linda Behar is a Venezuelan-born artist who has been living in the US for the past two decades. Behar holds a bachelors in civil engineering, an MFA with an emphasis in printmaking from Florida Atlantic University, and is a specialist in glass casting and pate de verre. She had her first solo exhibition at Broward College in 2008 and is an academic whose research mostly concerns feminism and the analysis of messages that the media disseminates through the public.

Behar’s main interests lie in the use of shape and the word’s function as both a noun and a verb. She wants to make her consumers acutely aware of the differences between the expectations posed on individuals by society and the way these individuals are able to form their own sense of self, especially when it comes to those placed on women throughout history. By utilizing videogame and photo editing software, Behar is able to use a laser cutter to create innovative yet traditional woodcut printing plates. The combination of technology as well as traditional printing techniques such as etching, relief, embossing and chine colle allow Behar to use body language to acknowledge and challenge the societal influence of body image.
