Strata: New Work by Gail Watkins

Chaney Gallery, 2nd floor


Artist Statement

"In the cycle of history, the new is created from the old.  It is the natural process of formation and dissolution that interests me and is evident in my work. My paintings are carefully designed and constructed using comics, photocopy, paint and glue. Then they are destroyed, often brutally, with sandpaper, wire brushes, boiling water or graffiti. The result is an inset of the historical process, a reintegration of elements destroyed and recreated by the passage of time and nature". - Gail Hillow Watkins
