Appropriation and the alteration of existing imagery lies at the heart of much of Linda Schwarz's graphic work. She commonly uses text fragments, musical scores, or other historically based documents as a starting point for her work. She then applies an intricate process of repeated alteration and overprinting of images to fashion richly textured and highly detailed visual amalgams in which form and content become closely linked.

Schwarz has shown her work in numerous gallery and museum exhibitions in Europe and America. In addition, her graphic work can be found in many public and private collections, including the State Museums of Berlin; Staatsgalerie Stuttgart; the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Cambridge, Massachusetts; the New York Public Library; the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Schwarz (b. 1963, Germany) lives and works in Heidelberg, Germany.
