Ann Gale opening

Tonight I attended Anne Gale's opening at Dolby Chadwick Gallery. I've always liked her paintings and was overall pleased with the show. Her Impressionistic style is enticing, but unlike the Impressionists, her colors are often cadaverous. There is also a propensity to her use of horizontal and vertical brushstrokes (see detail).

Finally, when examining her black, white, and grey series, I couldn't help but compare them to Giacometti's paintings. These were my very favorite from this series. I'm sure I will be highly influenced when I begin my newest painting excursion.
