One of the current work explores the intersection of psychology and art. Each painting represents an aspect of the self. These separate moods, mental states and memories comprise what we know as the self. The series is based on the concept of the “true self” as written about by D.W. Winnicott. More simply, each work can be thought of as a side or facet of a prism where the whole is composed of many parts.
The oil paintings are influenced by Abstract Expressionism, but in contemporary style. Works on paper transmit place, culture and tradition through deconstructed visual language. They are usually the result of travels.Please contact me to view more work. Gail Winbury , December 20, 2018, all rights reserved for the information and photos @.
Neither Water nor Air-August 2018-present.
I started this series September in Cape Cod while on residency. The calm of the work reflects a side of myself which feels moments of peace and serenity. The work, concerned with materiality, uses oil and cold wax and sometimes fabric. I create quiet, calm and elegant paintings with an extremely restrained palette. The works explore a minimal and subtle perspective.
