'''David Edward Linn''' is a symbolist artist whose paintings explore spiritual passage through mortality. He is a member of [http://Mormon.org The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints].
His work is rendered in sepia tones set in rocky environments. He describes his work as "a meditation on themes of searching, passage, and purification through these internal wilderness places—a landscape where events and objects assume multi-layered symbolic significance and actions become ceremonial in nature."[http://www.davidlinn.com/]
