Lin Kuhl Jay
Lin Kuhl Jay lives in Yonges Island, South Carolina. She spent her childhood in a county of rockets and balmy ocean breezes on the Florida east coast and graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1990 with a B.A. in art history.
Travel, adventures, and waiting tables (which allowed for painting on whim) filled the years before moving up to Charleston in 1994. She dipped a short toe in the local art community with: a brief start in Broad Perspectives, a women’s collective; a handful of small group shows; and illustration and cover work for Skirt Magazine. Alas, this is about the time that Lin realized that no matter how considerable her feminism might be, she was unable to be a fertile working artist and a baby-toting, full-minded (present?) mother to three. A few years ago she emerged from that intense theater/grotto/garden of delights, rediscovering the draw back into painting…and it begins again.
Artist, Marg Kuhl, was born in New Jersey but moved to De Leon Springs as a child. There she spent much of her time outdoors enjoying the wild, unspoiled rural Florida. She received her degree in Elementary Education from the University of Florida. Soon after graduation she fed her fascination with art, craft, photography, and sewing by teaching herself and by enrolling in local classes. Next she sought out professional workshops, conferences, and then classes at Arrowmont School where she studied with outstanding artist/teachers in many disciplines. This all consuming curiosity allowed her to build an encyclopedia of skills. Using these skills and with a natural quest for knowledge and a knack for investigation, she has created works in varied media.
Art has become a way of living daily life, a way to observe her surroundings, and a way to solve problems. She believes there is never one “right” way, therefore the search for solutions, the experimentation, and the process itself has become a joy.
Kuhl’s goal is not to reproduce an exact likeness of something one might observe in the real world. Therefore she is free to create works that are personal and yet universal. Although the media may change, the imagery has a constant narrative thread .The finished piece is always a surprise. The viewer may find the finished work engaging, whimsical, weird, or disconcerting. Since nothing is literal, one is invited to respond to the work from his/her own perspective.
