ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
Linda Frost was born and raised in rural Northwestern Pennsylvania surrounded by the untamed beauty of nature and wildlife. It was this very aspect of her natural surroundings that created in her sensitivity for life in all its forms. As an artist, Linda has grown in terms of her themes, concepts and mediums; however, the idea of animal testing has always insinuated lingering thoughts that evoked a sense of responsibility toward acts so merciless and appalling. She has always tried to understand the intended need for human beings to torture beings that know no bearing of pain and suffering yet are forced to endure these very burdens behind closed laboratory doors.
Several years ago, she began a series called - The Tortured Souls - which depicts the barbaric world of animal testing and focuses on the unwilling animal subjects who suffer in the name of science. Through this series, Linda aims to bring vivisection as an issue to the forefront and hopefully generate an open discussion.
