Linc Thelen’s abstractions are pleasant investigations into the formal issues of abstraction. His common forms are the circle, the line, the scallop, and the scribble. These forms construct Thelen’s composition, while his use of color and paint depict the mood of each work. Working mainly in medium to large scale works, Thelen paints spaces that envelope and engage the viewer.

His work has been featured in international publications from Israel, Greece, Italy, France, Germany and China. Linc Thelen is currently based in Chicago.
