Got to spend last week out in Denver, visiting friends and family and working on a couple features for Culture Vixen magazine. It was a blast! Here are some favorite photos snapped from the trip:

Sandy Skoglund’s Fox Games Art Installation.

I have always admired the work of Sandy Skoglund and finally got to see one of her installations in person! It was very red, and very cool to walk through a room of jumping foxes!

Malibu Artist Reception!

This years art exhibit was a big success! Got to show a collection of my watercolors from Iceland, along with the poems they were based on. It was my first time exhibiting poetry, which was a little intimidating, but the outcome was extremely rewarding! Keep your eyes peeled for my book with the full collection of my Iceland Abstracted paintings and poems, coming out later this year. Much thanks to all those who made the trip out to Malibu!! -Gayle

This year I’m exhibiting 15 watercolor paintings along with the poems they were based on. The paintings were chosen from a collection of about 35 watercolors from my Iceland Abstracted series which encompasses poetry and painting. The work was done mostly in the field in moleskine journals—on location in Iceland. If you have the chance, come on out to the museum!

Here’s an excerpt about me from the artist’s catalog that was published for the exhibition:

“Since my art is heavily influenced by the
destinations I’ve traveled to, my paintings are
filled with cultural references that are combined
to form a rich visual language. Additionally,
inspired by the years I spent in Japan, my compositions and line
work reflect the influence of ukiyo-e, while conceptually exploring the
relationship between unique distinctions and the ordinary.”

I hope to see you at the museum!
